Bikes, Blues, BBQ and one giant pig!
Northwest Arkansas' signature biker rally continues giving back to the community year-round!
Bikes, Blues & BBQ organizers unveiled a Pigshibition statue Monday in front of the Fayetteville Town Center.
"He's got shades. He's got a doorag. This is the best looking pig in town," says Joe Giles, BBB's executive director.
He's also outfitted with a leather vest, jeans and barbed wire.
Giles says the fiberglass pig's name is K.R., after a BBB General who works the rally each year.
You may have seen these giant Pigshibition pigs all over town.
Several businesses have sponsored them, including KNWA.
The pigs will be auctioned off on March 14 to raise money for the Ozark Literacy Council.
"The Ozark Literacy Council is one of our very favorite charities," Giles says. "As a former school teacher and administrator, I so believe in everything to do with literacy, so when this opportunity came up, we jumped at it. And where else can you get a fiberglass pig painted like a biker?! This was a perfect marriage for us."
We also asked Giles about what's going to be new and different for the Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally this year!
"We expect to expand just like we do every single year. We're ramping up our music lineup. We're ramping up everything about the entire rally, as a matter of fact," he says. "We think it'll be the biggest and best we've ever had!"
Bikes, Blues & BBQ 2013 kicks off September 18.
