CLINTON — Although the deadline has passed, anyone interested may still enter the Pigs on Parade contest for the 49th Annual Apple ‘n Pork Festival. They can pick up entry forms and plywood pig cutouts at the C.H. Moore Homestead DeWitt County Museum until all available pigs have been claimed.
There will be a $5 entry fee charged; payable when registering and receiving the pig. Artists, families, individuals and non-profit organizations are encouraged to participate (no commercial or political entries, please).
This is the sixth year for the popular contest. The museum uses the colorful, amusing porcine creations to decorate the festival grounds and museum fences during the Apple ‘n Pork Festival.
Entries will be judged and cash prizes will be awarded. “Grand Campion” will receive $50 and $25 will go to the “Reserve Champion.”
