The Wild Wild West Comes to Islandia for Its Annual Bar-B-Que

Tuesday, August 9, 2016
Children take part in a limbo contest during the Village of Islandia’s annual Bar-B-Que on July 9.

On July 9, nearly eight hundred Islandia Village residents came out to the eleventh Annual Bar-B-Que. This year’s theme was “The Wild Wild West” as children in attendance received a free T-shirt to commemorate the event and a cowboy hat.

Village volunteers and local Boy Scouts served residents hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, ice cream, soda and water. Children enjoyed the day with hayrides, games, pony rides, a petting zoo, arts and crafts, face painting, piñatas, train rides, a limbo contest and a dunk tank. A local DJ provided the music to keep the party going.

In addition, Mayor Allan M. Dorman hosted a blueberry pie eating contest with the winners each getting a blueberry pie. The Bar-B-Que also featured raffles, in which two lucky children each won a boys’ and girls’ bicycle and one Islandia resident went home with a 48-inch flatscreen TV.
