JD BBQ Like a Local: The Parade of Teams

Everyone knows about the full slate of activities that happen on the Saturday of the Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue but one of the lesser known events happens on Friday and it’s a ton of fun. The Parade of Teams through Wiseman Park will happen on Friday at 4 p.m.

Not only do teams from all 50 states gather in Lynchburg each year to compete for The Jack but also teams from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Poland and Switzerland and other countries. On Friday, they’ll throw a mini Mardi Gras as teams throw candy, beads, flags, and other goodies along the parade route from Wiseman Park and around the historic Lynchburg square. •

Editor’s Note: We’ll post live updates throughout the The Jack on Saturday. Look for pictures and updates continuously throughout the day on our social media.
