A highlight of the Exchange Club's Ribfest and Gurnee Days, is the annual Rib Eating Contest. The contest features representatives from various community agencies competing for the coveted Rib Eating Trophy. Contestants are presented with 4 lbs of ribs and sauce and have 2 minutes to see who can eat the most. Local celebrities round out the contest entertainment with witty commentary. This event is always a favorite!
