Bigger and better is the promise when the second edition of Sydney RibFest returns this summer.

Details of the event hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Cape Breton Regional Municipality were released on Monday morning at the Membertou Trade and Convention Centre.

This year, the event will be held from July 15-17 at Open Hearth Park, after a successful launch in 2015 on the Sydney waterfront.

Five North American rib teams will return for the weekend — Silver Bullet, Camp 31, Billy Bones BBQ and Cabby’s BBQ Shack.

They’ll be joined by Texas Rangers, a team in competition since 2006.

Last year, an estimated 25,000 people took in RibFest in Sydney and organizers are hoping to top that number this year.

More to come.
