SPOKANE, Wash. -- Menus change, restaurants come and go, but Pig Out in the Park has been a feature of Spokane’s Labor Day weekend for years.
"Pig Out's a family event; it's a community event,” said Val Workman, the "Mayor” of Pig Out in the Park. “It's a really fun ambiance - the smells, the sounds, everything.”
The event has evolved, however, over its three decades. Pig Out used to last just for the weekend but it now runs for six days.
Also over the years, people have asked about getting sample sizes to try more of the food. So this year, every food vendor planned to offer ‘$3 bites’ every night from 10 to 11 p.m. and Wednesday, Thursday, and Monday from 2-4 p.m.
Organizers expect nearly 100,000 people to attend Pig Out in the Park 2013.
Pig Out was scheduled to begin Wednesday at 10 a.m. and run every night until 11 p.m.
