For nearly four decades, Pig Out in the Park has been satiating local appetites for indulgent food and something to do throughout the (unofficial) final weekend of summer. People pack Riverfront Park during the food festival’s six-day run with one big challenge to face: deciding what to order from more than 40 food booths, which in total boast more than 200 menu items. If the food isn’t enough to draw you downtown, the music might be. Pig Out’s other big draw has always been its long list of free outdoor concerts, this year featuring headliners like Sir Mix-A-Lot and Paul Revere’s Raiders (see this week's issue for more on Pig Out 2017’s music). Don’t forget, there are also three beer gardens to quench your thirst as you rock out. If your appetite’s not huge — or you simply seek a wider sampling of the vendors — the special $4 bites menu is offered daily from 3 to 5 and 9 to 10 pm.
