FREE FEST: Troy Pig Out Is Saturday
The 10th annual Troy Pig Out will get fired up at Riverfront Park in Troy from 10am-9pm on Saturday (July 15), and by now everyone should that the centerpiece of the day-long festival is the big barbecue contest, which draws competitors from all over. And, you, the festival-goers, get to vote for your favorite, too.
But there’s lots more goin’ on at the Pig Out than just barbecue. There’s a hot dog-eating contest, the Collar City Cornhole Tournament, food & craft vendors, fireworks and, of course, plenty of live music all throughout the day.
