This will be the first year of the competition, which includes a music festival and full day of activities. The run of events will be from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.

“The idea of King Of The Hill stemmed from the childhood game of being the best,” according to the website.

The categories will be divided into turn-ins for chicken, sauce, steak, ribs and people’s choice. Afterward, awards will be announced. Some of the live music performances include Matt Hillyer and Ryder Grimes.

Tickets are $25. More details can be found on the event website.

Flag Pole Hill is located at 8015 Doran Circle.
