Hillsborough Hog Day


I just couldn’t seem to keep my mouth from watering as the scent of BBQ wafted through the air and I walked past stands selling grilled corn and lemonade.  What does one do in this situation?  Sample the fare at Hillsborough Hog Day of course!

This past weekend, the town of Hillsborough celebrated its 30th annual Hog Day.  Hog Day is an annual BBQ festival where local cookers come out to show what they are made of and compete for the title of best BBQ in the land.  BBQ isn’t your cup of tea?  Not to worry! There is much more than just BBQ at this event!  Live music, games, rides, the Triangle Thunder Cruisers car show, vendors and crafters are just some of the other activities that can be found at the Hillsborough Hog Day.
