Saturday, July 12th was a celebration of one of America's greatest inventions, the burger.

The inaugural Big Lick Burger Fest took place at  the Wells Fargo Plaza in Downtown Roanoke.

From noon to 6 p.m., Roanoke's favorite local restaurants and food trucks showcased their signature burgers and specialty creations.

Proceeds from the event went to the Market Building Foundation, which operates the City Market Building as a place for the community to come together.
