A two day festival along the scenic Ohio River
in historic Madison, Indiana. Regional and national blues bands set the mood as we indulge our taste for some of the best barbeque in the country. Stay tuned as the band committee is working on the '08 line-up. As soon as contracts areconfirmed the '08 will performers will be posted on the Ribberfest site. As always committee will bring you awesome entertainment!
Another attraction is the Hot Air Balloon races
Please note!! There is an admission charge of $20 for the event but if you get your wrist band early, you’ll get $10 worth of food and drink tickets.

The Balloon races and the "balloon glow" are free and can easily be seen and enjoyed from the river front area without attending the Blues and BBQ event.

I'll be ready for the spring gathering! :thumbsup:

I've heard from many different directions that spot specific reservations are a thing of the past in our state parks. Has anyone got details on this ? Is it true? :thumbdown:

As state employees you should get a free pass or very reduced rates at all the state parks. Have you looked into this ?

I have an uncle who has been a state trooper forever and he makes a habit of staying at all the state park inn's when he is in need of a hotel room.

Hi Scott,

If you're doing the map thing again this year, I have site #77 at Brown County in May.
