With the Grill Games BBQ Competitions & Lakefront Festival behind us we would like to acknowledge the many people who made it possible. We would like to start with the team from United Way of Kenosha County who helped us recruit volunteers and also volunteered. A very warm thanks to the City of Kenosha who supplied vital services and park setup.
