The annual Neligh Chamber of Commerce BBQ during the Antelope County Fair served well over 1,000 people on Saturday afternoon.
Barbecue chairs Jill Kallhoff and Lauren Sheridan-Simonsen said the event drew a steady stream of people through Riverside Park. The barbecue began at 4:30 p.m. with food served until nearly 7 p.m.
Nearly 50 Chamber members volunteered their time to cut meat, serve food and clean up following the event.
The barbecue was free-will offering with funds going toward various Chamber projects, including the implementation of a new business loan program.
