From meat sizzling on the grill to Indian tacos, and everything in between, Sioux City's Saturday in the Park "Food Vender Avenue" is the place to be. That's where you can find Kevin Solma slaving over his outside kitchen. Kevin Solma, owner of "3 guys and a Ribeye" said, "It's our ribeye steak sandwiches, we grill them fresh hot off the grill. We're all three brothers..it's just a little excuse to get together." That excuse has brought "3 guys and a Ribeye" to Grandview Park for the fourth year in a row. The three of them set up shop here every Saturday closest to the 4th of July. Hands down, their biggest weekend. Kevin Solma, added, "Last year was our biggest event, by far." But food vendors aren't the only ones serving it up at this annual festival. Face painting, puppets dancing and old fashioned balloon artists are all part of the entertainment. And just in case you want to knock out some shopping, Saturday in the Park has you covered. Jennifer Bratcher of Bohdi Imports said, "We bring gifts from mostly Southeast Asia, Thailand, and Indonesia. My family travels and we work directly with Artisans and bring all those great things to us here in the U.S." Dresses, skirts, wood carvings, and jewelry can all be found at Bohdi Imports and one thing every concession can agree on: this is the place to be. Jennifer Bratcher claimed, "It's a great family event..alot of people like to come out and enjoy it for the whole day..it's a great thing for people to do to catch some free, really amazing music." Whether it's the music, shopping, or the food, Saturday in the Park has something for just about everyone. Kevin Solma, summed it up, "Saturday in the Park is great..the weather turned out to be great today..it's not so hot, so everybody wins."
