Bring on the Chicken-Ques!

Posted on July 31, 2020 at 4:03 PM by Crystal Keener

If you haven't already heard (or smelled) the delicious news, the famous Chicken-Ques are back! Memorial Park’s barbecue pits finally opened on Wednesday, July 15, after being closed since mid-March due to COVID-19. North Wilkesboro pushed to (safely) reopen the barbecue pits on Fridays to allow our local nonprofits to continue the tradition of selling tasty chicken plates to fundraise for community projects.  On schedule for next week: Friday, August 7th North Wilkes High School Marching Band Boosters will be on site and ready to serve starting around 10:30 and then on Saturday, August 8th Harvest Time Fellowship Church will be at the pit. BBQ Chicken Plate Come support our small Town’s tradition and give back to our local nonprofits, civic clubs, schools, and other public services. Join us in Memorial Park most Fridays and Saturdays starting at 11 am, and grab a mouthwatering chicken or BBQ plate! Proceeds from the Chicken-Ques make a HUGE difference in our strong community, so support, shop, and eat local!  Mr-Eds-Heavenly-BBQ-Chicken-Ribs-and-Sides Please be sure and to practice social distancing and wear masks at all times. Organizations are taking extra precautions to keep you safe (and full).
