The subject of the "Big Pig Gig" is hot again. There is some fine local reporting on the subject from out own local paper here:
I was and am a supporter of this event and am glad they are looking at a revival of the event. The first year was tough, as is any events maiden voyage. Most people, including me, thought there would be lots of food to sample, buy or eat. The second year I was there I didn't recognize anyone from the Falls other than the volunteers and the place was pretty packed with people. They obviously drew from outisde the area. One wonders why more locals wouldn't attend an event in their backyard. Last year the planners took a hiatus to see how it could make money, if they were to resume. Smart.
If you and your family like to watch great local amature ice skaging, there is the Red, White and Blades figure skaking show. Admission is only $10 and the proceeds go to support the amature teams particpating in the event. It is one of the few events you can attend without paying for parking or getting robbed at the consession stand.
This show is celebrating their 35th year with performances from 6 clubs. Great family entertainment.
It may seem corney but guys like this keeps makes me optimistic in the strength of this country.
