Second annual Porkfest a success

The Morrisburg Downtown Business Improvement Area (DBIA) hosted the second annual Porkfest on August 20th.
This year, there were nine vendors serving up pork treats from the usual fare of ribs and pulled pork, to chocolate covered bacon.
“Some of the vendors started running out around 5 p.m.,” stated Grace McDonough, coordinator for the Morrisburg DBIA.
“Except for a bit of rain which cleared up quickly the weather was great.”
There was something for everyone at the event from The Pizza Castle’s whole roasted pig, to pulled pork sliders, sausages, and Jamaican jerk spiced pork.
“I started the pig at 2 a.m.,” stated Bobby Bedard from The Pizza Castle of their entry to the event.
Along with double the vendors last year, attendance was up.
New this year to the event were Lockview Fries from Iroquois, The Pit from Williamsburg, Hucklehounds Catering from Morrisburg, and Homestead Organics in Morrisburg.
The Morrisburg Jr. C Lions operated a beer tent while local classic rock cover group Rogue performed in sets throughout the event.
For children were two bouncy castles brought by the Dixon Corners Community Center, which also served up Cotton Candy. The South Dundas Chamber of Commerce had summer students available for face painting.
“All in all it was a very successful event,” said McDonough.
