11 a.m., North Shore Riverwalk. $5 (free for children under 12).

Now in its fourth year, Buzz-B-Q pairs together the key ingredients of any good party: barbecue and live music. On the barbecue side of things, contestants in two divisions — Pro Joe and Average Joe — will start cooking bright and early. Hosted by 103.7 "The Buzz" and benefiting the North Little Rock Firefighters Local 35 Fallen Firefighters Memorial Fund, the event opens to the public at 11 a.m. and as the meat gets done, most contestants will be offering up free samples. Some $5,000 cash and prizes will be up for grabs in the Pro Joe division, where the judging will be somewhat rigorous. All the Buzz dudes—Tommy Smith, David Bazzel, Justin Acri, Pat Bradley and Joe Franklin will be on hand to host and emcee the event. For kids, there'll be a a Family Fun Zone with a rock climbing wall, super slide, obstacle course, the Twisters Football Toss, 3D miniature golf and a hunting simulator. Plus, for grown folks, age 21 and up, the "Buzzeritaville" area features T's Tunes karaoke, pool tables, TVs to watch the Preakness and Stinky Gringo margaritas.
