Police Activities League Hosts Battle of The Badges BBQ



After losing the last THREE Battle of the Badges to MPD, you would think that the heat is too much for the folks over at the MFD. But, being the good sports that they are, they are coming back for another shot at the hardware.

Please join us this Saturday, September 10th, for free food and plenty of fun at the 4th Annual “Battle of the Badges: the People’s BBQ”. The Minneapolis Police Activities League is hosting the event as part of their ongoing efforts to engage with communities across the city.

This free event features a “friendly” competition between officers from the MPD, Park Police, and firefighters from the MFD as they battle for the title of Best Ribs in the City!

As the competitors fire up their grills and smokers, the Minnesota BBQ Society will cook up free food (while it lasts)! There will be activities for kids and adults, and live music.

What: Battle of the Badges Cook-Off: The People’s BBQ

When: Saturday September 10th from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Where: North Commons Park, 1801 James Avenue North, Minneapolis
