Letters to the Editor

Official poster needs more information | Letter

Editor,

Sunday was the Pigfest in Oak Harbor. Lots of vendors and games for everyone to enjoy.

The official poster for the event showed the start and finish times, but lacked information about the individual events. We got there just after noon to a huge crowd. There was a huge line for the free food.

I was interested in “sampling” the contest entries by barbecue vendors, but for most of the time, the “no sampling” sign was hung. The sampling didn’t really start until 2 p.m.

The free food people ran out of free food in less than one hour.

I got to sample from one vendor and then found a frozen yogurt site at the end of Pioneer Way. That was a great relief with the hot sunny weather. Thanks for the free water.

The event was clearly overwhelmed by the crowd. Great turn out, but next year please post the event times on the poster.
