(A tradition has come to an end)…It was one of the most popular events of the year.

The Holtville Athletic Club Rib Cook-off has ended its run. They say it is time to move on. The Cook-off has been a tradition for more than 20 years, drawing in 10,000 to 12,000 people every year at the park in Holtville. They have raised thousands of dollars every year for the youth of Imperial County. It is not known if anyone else will take up the mantle, but for the Holtville Athletic Club, the Rib Cook-off has run its course.
