Traditional food is smoked pork BBQ cooked on site by B&T’s Cajun Country Catering, beans, slaw, chips and tea. There will also be hotdogs available for children. In addition to dinner the event includes live music, an auction and a raffle. There will also be activities for children including an inflatable bounce house, face painting and pony rides.
The Blackman Barbeque was conceived by the Blackman Community Club in 1949 to raise funds for a clubhouse and grounds. Over time the event has grown and the community center has flourished as a place for community meetings, family reunions and for children to play.
