Big Pig Jig Parade this Saturday

VIENNA — The Big Pig Jig is just around the officially kick off this weekend with the Big Pig Jig preview parade. The parade will be held in downtown Vienna at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 24. Parade participants will line up on Seventh Street South beginning at 10 a.m. the day of the parade.
This year’s theme is “Hog Hop” similar to a 50’s Sock Hop  so participants are encouraged to get creative with their entry designs. There will be no charge for entering the parade
For safety purposes, parade units are NOT allowed to throw candy or other items from moving parade vehicles. If any entrants have candy or items to distribute they may do so by having someone from their group walk alongside the float and pass the items out by hand.
Entry forms and a complete list of rules are available online at www.bigpigjig.com. Entry forms should be submitted by Monday, October 19. Those forms can be mailed to Vienna Main Street Attn: Larista Thompson,  P.O. Box 436 Vienna, Ga. 31092. Anyone with any questions can contact Thompson, Vienna Main Street Director at (229) 268-4921 or the Dooly County Chamber of Commerce at (229)268-8275.
The Big Pig Jig will be held in Vienna’s famous Pig Jig Village on Friday and Saturday, November 6-7.
