2007 Ribfest?

Anyone heard any plans for a 2007 Ribfest? I know it has been moved to Harriet Island in recent years. I also know that it has usually been held the last week of July. Anybody heard or seen any info? If so, please fill me in. Thanks.

I do believe the RibFest is nixxed this year ...

kind of a shame -

when it was in Minneapolis, it was very popular -

during the day over lunch

as well as all the musical acts at night

maybe they are taking a break ?

I have found a tad bit of useless info at

golf.exploreminnesota.com/events/5268.html which doesn't really make any sense with the dates they list, but if you click on the "hosted by" link, there is a phone number to call. When I call, "Molly" is the only one who would have info, and she is out of the office today.

Funny -

I checked out that link - it looked like valid info.

But when you go to the City of St. Paul / Harriet Island Events page -

it makes no mention of it -
