Later this year, on June 2 and 3, thousands of people will once again gather at the Community Park to enjoy both live music and barbecue. The 2016 BBQ Cook-Off was one to remember, with 60 teams participating and thousands more enjoying the live music of established Texas-country singer Cory Morrow. Word of the event has spread across the state, and on March 16 earlier this year, the Texas Senate passed a Resolution that recognized the Forney BBQ Cook-Off.
A portion of the Resolution, sponsored by State Senator Bob Hall of District 2, read as follows:
“WHEREAS, Texans are noted for their love of barbecue, and
it is hoped that many will attend the Forney BBQ Cook-Off and
Festival, which is sure to provide outstanding barbecue for the
most discerning of tastes; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the Senate of the State of Texas, 85th
Legislature, hereby extend congratulations to the citizens of
Forney for hosting the Forney BBQ Cook-Off and Festival and
extend to all participants best wishes for a successful event”
