This Little Piggy ...

Rockin' Harley Hawg

Lexington North Carolina is small sleepy town known for only one thing, the national Bar-B-Que festival. If you've had a Lexington style BBQ sandwich you know why its famous up and down the entire east coast.

The city of Lexington has given honor to these animals by producing their own unique population of piggy's. They turned to local artist to design and paint pigs to go on display in the city for everyone to see.

These sculptures look somewhat like a full size pig. They all have their own distinct personality and are sure to make you grin. They have names like Digger the Caterpigger, Huckleberry Pig, Mr. Porkwrench, Pigahontas, Swine Lake and my favorite Rockin' Harley Hawg. I think there are about thirty different pigs on display throughout the year.

They prove that even a pig can be cute with a little paint.

If you are ever in the area stop in and take a picture with a piggy!
