One of the tastiest traditions in the state is almost ready to return to Lewis County.
The Almost Heaven BBQ Bash returns on Friday to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston.
Crews at the asylum were already working to get the lawn set up, to help fit the thousands of people expected for the event this year.
They said they have a big job, but it’s not the biggest one for the weekend.
“We’re putting up tents, trimming trees, mowing lawns, using the weed eaters, getting tables and chairs set up. It’s a long process, but not nearly s long as the wonderful ladies that work on that event,” said TALA Operations Manager Rebecca Jordan Gleason.
The BBQ bash officially gets underway this Friday at 11 a.m., and runs until Saturday evening.
