WHAT: 2012 Presidential Pig Race
WHEN: 11 a.m., Thursday, August 30th, 2012, during The Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off
WHERE: The corner of 11th & Victorian in Sparks, just outside of John Ascuaga’s Nugget
John Ascuaga’s Nugget is putting the “pork” in politics at this year’s Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off at John Ascuaga’s Nugget! In a completely unscientific method of predicting America’s next Commander in Chief, pigs dressed to represent “Obama” and “Romney” will race down Victorian Avenue, oinking for your vote.
Just like the real 2012 Presidential candidates, these little piggies will be pounding the pavement!
See which pig “squeals” the top spot, and wins by a snout!
If your prediction falls short, you can always join the half-a-million people chowing down on more than 100 tons of ribs at one of the largest BBQ festivals in the country. The 24th Annual Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off runs from August 29 – September 3, 2012.
