Barbecue team registration is open, and tickets are now on sale for the second annual Pigs for the Kids competition.
The festival will take place on September 17 from noon to 9 p.m. Featuring live bands, beer, wine, and more, the family-friendly event supports Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.
The competition offers trophies in five categories: ribs, pork shoulder, sauce, beans, and Hog Wild, where anything goes as long as it includes pork. 50 teams will be judged by a panel of certified and celebrity judges.
Pigs for the Kids was inspired by founder Todd Radwanski's daughter Adilyn, who was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer at eight months old. Now 12 years old, Adilyn served as an ambassador for the Candlelighters' 5k and continues to act as an inspiration for everyone around her.
