Guam Diner Bytes: 4th Annual GVB Block Party A Resounding Success!
It came and it went...the streets were empty, then overflowing with people and filled with smoking grills...then empty after it was over! it was a fantastic party...a carnival, with fun and entertainment for everyone! I don't know what the estimated count was for attendance, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were 8,000 people in Tumon, and maybe more if you consider people coming and going. I never saw the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and heard it was fun! I did see the antique classic cars and some cool motorcycles. I even got me one of them "must-have" Smoked Turkey Legs from Guam BBQ Company, the most popular booth with people lining up for over an hour to get one of those bad boys!!
I spent most of my time in a judging room for the BBQ Competition. Below are the official results showing the winners in each of the three categories:
