13th Annual Pigtown Festival this Weekend



catch of the day fish (2)What was once simply the 13th Annual Pigtown Festival is now a  “Street Carnival & O’s pre-party.” It’s not the only local event that has changed its name/location/tag-line based on the Os’ not-exactly-anticipated success this season. But of course, it’s a nice change to have to make. And it gives us all the more reason to get out this weekend and celebrate in one of the city’s great neighborhoods. The family-friendly festival will feature live music all day long from the likes of Super Bueno, Da B’more Brass Factory, and more. There will be food aplenty from Sausage Barons (perfect if you haven’t gotten your Oktoberfest quota in yet), Little Italy Sausage, Pizza di Joey, Smokin’ Joe’s Barbecue, HarborQue, Breaking Bread and Dangerously Delicious Pies. And it wouldn’t be a local fest without Heavy Seas Brewing on hand. They’ve got an exclusive “pigtail ale” (not made with real pigtail, we hope), and with a special wristband, you can enjoy as much as you can drink (responsibly).
