OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT)- With the International Bar-B-Q Festival in Owensboro canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic, event organizers found a way to keep the festival’s unique spirit alive Saturday with the first ever drive-thru “Mutton Glutton.”
One thousand mutton sandwiches were distributed on a first come, first served basis. The festival also gave away event t-shirts. The shirts were already printed but they stamped “cancelled” and “Owensboro Together” on the back.
