Pig Mania set to return

ROANOKE — By popular request, “Pig Mania” will return to this year’s 2022 Almost Heaven BBQ Bash with ceramic pigs available for adoption by area businesses, civic groups, and even families to decorate for judging on Saturday, June 18 at Stonewall Resort.

Show off your creativity using any theme or decoration you wish (PG-rated please for this family event) with winners receiving special awards, bragging rights, and cash including $50 for third place, $100 for second place, and $200 for the 2022 Pig Mania first place winner. 

Stop by the BBQ Bash Headquarters at the Roanoke Building for one free voting token, with additional tokens available for $1 each, or six for $5, to provide extra support for your favorite piggy. Pigs will be on display on Saturday, June 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for voting with winners based on number of tokens received. Pig entries will be numbered to provide a fair chance for everyone, with names of the pig’s owners/creators revealed at the Awards Ceremony – approx. 4:30 p.m.
