Team One Credit Union’s Rock the Block Ribfest brought out over 1,700 people to FirstMerit Bank Event Park in downtown Saginaw! With amazing entertainment, finger licking good ribs and a beautiful outdoor venue, it was the perfect way to kick off the start of summer.
This free community event featured entertainment by The Jerry Ross Band and Saginaw’s own Soul Xpress. Also, rib samples to vote on from Sweet Success, Olivera’s, Savor, ABO Tent and Event Services and Maria’s were free to attendees thanks to the Ribfest Premier sponsors, Suski Chevrolet Buick, Saginaw Community Foundation and First Student. After a lot of ribs were enjoyed by all, Olivera’s won the fan-voted 2016 Ribfest title.
