Hillsborough Hog Day

Hog Day starts tonight (cause hog day is actually 2 days) at 6 pm. I remember hearing about this festival for the first time when I was in high school and I thought it was really odd. I grew up vegetarian so any festival celebrating the demise of an animal was new to me!

It's nice to see that they're trying to be environmentally friendly with garbage, though I do find it a bit ironic that they're starting this practice at an event that celebrates a historically unenvironmentally friendly industry. Don't get me wrong, I heart barbeque just like the rest of you. And if you've never been, hog day is a great place to eat good food, listen to live music and buy from local artists :)

I was hoping to go the entire day without reading a headline with "hog waste" in it. But I didn't make it. Thanks a lot.

Great! I love going to Hillsborough... hubby's cousin works at Tupelo's. Maybe we'll go there this evening! Hugs, Vanessa
