It is a time for street fairs, pigging out, literally, on pork products and whatever else the vendors can persuade you to buy. It is a time for music, a "Miss Tipton County Pork Festival Queen" contest, singing, dancing, car shows, rock bands and just about any kind of good, clean foolishness you can imagine.
There will be a "kickoff" parade at five Thursday evening, and a big (and I do mean big) parade Saturday afternoon which will last entirely too long for you to stand in one spot. Bring a chair, or walk around to keep the circulation going.
Okay, so come on over. Bring smiles and forget your diet; but most of all, bring money.
