What could be more American than a traditional Western cookout? A party with grills, American BBQ, cowboy boots, country music, line dance, pony rides, and a mechanical bull! All this and more was presented to Slovenians as part of the Wild West Fest that took place at Lake Zbilje in mid-August. The U.S. Embassy in Slovenia supported this popular event held by the Slovenian BBQ Society. This 3-day festival featured a country festival and an international BBQ competition with line-dancing and well-known European barbeque masters. Everybody enjoyed themselves even the people that got thrown from the mechanical bull.
