Morrilton's annual laud to all things porcine begins Friday at the 21st Annual Great Arkansas Pig Out. Good chance to have a swine time and enjoy the National Hog Calling Contest, the Piggy Dash Family Fun Run, and all the free Petit Jean Hot Dogs you can eat. And plenty of pork butts will likely be sacrificed for your entertainment and enjoyment in the culinary sense. Check out more info on the event's website.
