In Waterloo, barbecue brought people to Lincoln Park for BBQ'Loo and Blues Too.

Saturday, the focus was on the barbecue as teams from across the Midwest competed for top honors in chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder and beef brisket.

Of course, along with the barbecue, there's live music throughout.

"It's very important we want to bring them downtown let them realize what there is down here when we come to a free event that means they can come enjoy it,"  said Cindy Wells, BBQ'Loo and Blues Too co-chair.  "No matter how many kids, how many family members they have and they can just have a fun day downtown. "

Iowa Smokey D's BBQ from Des Moines was named the best tasting and walked away with the top prize.
