LEXINGTON, N.C. – Folks near and far know one thing - Lexington barbecue has it's own distinct taste.
The 33rd annual Lexington Barbecue Festival took place on Saturday in uptown Lexington. Thousands of pork lovers crowded the streets to get a taste of one southern, savory treat.
WFMY News 2 spoke to a couple who is originally from California, but recently moved to Burlington. They admitted they were impressed with what Lexington had to offer.
The festival came complete with a massive sand sculpture of pigs, pig races, craft vendors, and rides.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our News 2 tents! We had a 'piggy good time' with y'all!
