D61_3973.jpgThe Orlando EDC’s 27th annual BBQ on the Boulevard brought a new record crowd, with over 1,000 registered attendees. The EDC’s signature event invited community and business leaders to gather together on a blocked section of Central Boulevard in front of Lake Eola for an evening of great BBQ and networking.

From elected government officials to players and representatives from Orlando’s professional sports teams, leaders from all sectors of Orlando’s business community attended the BBQ. Even Kingston, the Orlando City Soccer Club mascot, and players from the Orlando Solar Bears came out to the event.

This year, attendees enjoyed barbecue from 4-Rivers, Bubbalou’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que, Char-Don, Porkie’s Original BBQ, Sonny’s BBQ and Smokey Bones, with sweet treats from Pop Parlour and Nothing Bundt Cakes. Victory Tailgate created an EDC Cornhole game for the event.

Attendees also used Monster Media’s photo kiosks to snap pictures during the BBQ. Additional photos from the event can be found here.
