Crystal & I spent some time at Pig Out In The Park this year and I have to say I was impressed with the turnout. The weather was a bit overcast and muggy but not too hot. There was a sea of people gorging themselves on over 40 vendors worth of food and drink.
My office is just across the street from the park, but I’m sad to say I’ve really not spent much time there. I remember the rides, Imax & other attractions fondly from my childhood, but had almost forgotten they were there!
We made our way to Azar’s and had some Gyros (they were amazing by the way) and wondered over to the Northern Lights Brewery booth for some unique micro-brews. The Chocolate & Blueberry beers were very interesting!
You can’t Pig Out In The Park without desert! We made our way to the homemade ice cream booth and ordered pie and ice cream (by this time I was almost in a food induced coma). All in all it was a great time and relatively inexpensive. Nothing was over $8-$9 and the portions were good.
If you haven’t made it down there yet – you’d better, Pig Out ends Monday September 7!
