Scenes From the 2011 Pig in the Park BBQ Celebration in Goldsboro, North Carolina
Last week, on our Facebook page, we asked a question of our fans and anyone else who wanted to answer. That question was, “What is your favorite North Carolina BBQ: Eastern or Western?” The Eastern North Carolina BBQ won in a landslide, but we didn’t ask this question randomly. We asked because days later we were visiting the annual Pig in the Park BBQ Celebration at the Old Waynesborough Historic Village in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
It was a little wet and a little overcast, but that didn’t seem to put any kind of damper on the attendance or spirit of the event. The Old Waynesborough Historic Village served as a great site for the event. Horse rides, train rides, BBQ, face painting, kettle corn, funnel cakes…we can go on and on at the fun that was to be had, but only describing it and not seeing it in person just doesn’t do this event justice. If you weren’t able to get out this year for the celebration this year, make sure you mark it down for next year.
In addition to the great family fun, the event was held to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wayne County. From the official Wayne County Boys and Girls Clubs website:
The purpose of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County is to promote the social, educational, health, leadership, and character development of boys and girls during critical periods of their growth. Our youth come to the Boys & Girls Clubs to receive tutoring/homework help, computer training, sports education, to make friends and for mentoring. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of usefulness and belonging.
Great things all around going on at The Pig in the Park BBQ Celebration. We had an awesome time and thank everyone who stopped by our booth at the event. Below are some pictures of our day. As always you can check out all the pictures on our Facebook Page.
