The Antioch Lions Club, with assistance from Antioch firefighters, held their annual Chicken BBQ at Williams Park, 741 Main St., on Sunday, July 26. The popular event was a success again this year, keeping area residents well fed.

Over 1,800 half-birds were served to attendees. A drive-thru line was available allowing people not wanting to eat at the park to get their meal to go.

In addition to the food, those on-hand were also entertained with live music and games.
