CRESTVIEW — Organizers of March 29's Triple B: Blackwater, Bluegrass and Barbecue Cookoff  seek businesses and others interested in sponsoring the Main Street event.

"We are right on track," Christie Cadenhead, chairperson of the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce event, said. "We had a real successful event last year and we are looking to expand on that."

Nearly 10,000 people attended the Triple B festival in the past two years, she said, citing the Crestview Police Department's data. 

In the Triple B's 10th year, event organizers want to attract more area musicians and entries for the barbecue cookoff without changing the event's format.

"We definitely don't want to re-invent the wheel," Cadenhead said.

Triple B features local musicians, including area church groups and school bands, like Crestview High's jazz band, which enhance the event, organizers said.

"We have found that people just enjoy listening to local talent," Cadenhead said.
