Add some globe lights, over one hundred tables, and just under 1k of black chairs and you’ve got one big event. Don’t forget crowd/bike barricade, a stage for all of the blues to take place on and linens to dress up the tables. This is all happening this weekend at the  2017 North Liberty Blues & BBQ festival set up in Centennial Park, North Liberty, Iowa.
