HOPEWELL — Hopewell experienced it’s first ever ‘Get Your Butts To Broadway’ event on Saturday, a barbecue, beer and music festival downtown organized by The Hopewell Downtown Partnership.

Several blocks of East Broadway Avenue were blocked off from 5-8 p.m. where hundreds of people gathered to vote which of the many competitors cooked the best barbecue.

The Fort Lee Battlefield Brass Band performed at the event.
The barbecue teams who competed included Parr’s BBQ, Billy’s Kickin’ Butt BBQ, Hopewell Lions Club BBQ, Old Town Grillers/Hopewell Nature and Aquatic Center BBQ, Brickman BBQ and Holy Smoke BBQ.

The Battlefield Brass Band of Fort Lee kicked off the event, which featured several musical performances throughout the evening.
