Pigs on Parade


New to this years Hog Day festival is our "Pigs on Parade" Art Project.  Local businesses, nonprofits, schools and individuals can either buy or rent a life-sized hog or pot bellied pig to paint and display the month leading up to Hog Day.  Much like other cities across the Nation have done, those participating will receive an unpainted pig to paint and design anyway they wish.  We will hold a "People's Choice" voting here on our website for people to vote for their favorite design.  You can display your pig at your place of business or we will find a place for you.  If you don't have anyone willing to help you paint it we can find you someone to help.  All pigs will need to be brought to Hog Day where the winner will be unveiled.  In keeping with our Hog Day tradition lets see who can have the best dressed pig!!!!
