Hillsborough Hog Day

Local Boy | Jun 15, 2004 10:58 AM

This weekend (June 18 & 19, 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.) marks the 22d annual Hillsborough Hog Day Festival in historic Hillsborough, NC (near Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh). While they have entertainment and booths etc., the real highlight is the pork barbeque cook-off. The festival offers NC style barbeque at its finest. Although I haven't attended in many years, due to relocating, I grew up in Hillsborough and once satisfied a community service sentence for a misdemeanor by picking up trash during the festival. Ah, but I digress. If there are any chowhounds in the Research Traingle area who need a fix of fantastic pork barbeque - Hillsborough is the place to be this weekend. The festival is held in downtown Hillsborough on the banks of the Eno River. Enjoy - and have a hushpuppy for me, since I will not be in attendance.
