Spirits Soar at Pig Fest XIX

One of the most successful Pig Fests in recent history took over Broad Street in Richland Thursday night with a fish fry and gospel music and relinquished its hold as Saturday night turned to Sunday morning. Several thousand locals celebrated the official return of Pig Fest as the event celebrated 19 years. Authorities, because of fire danger, canceled fireworks scheduled for Saturday, much to the dismay of the crowd. The pyrotechnic display may be rescheduled over the holidays. Details should be released in a few days.
