Westcliff hosts Pig Picking weekend

Generations of Westcliffe residents, guests and former ‘Cliffees’ will gather this coming Memorial Day weekend to celebrate the neighborhood’s 35th annual Pig Picking Weekend.
Beginning Friday with movie parties, the festivities continue all day Saturday with a 5k run, a parade, lawn mower race, children’s games, and a horseshoe tournament. Golf carts, lawn mowers and bicycles will follow Salisbury, Franklin and Ellis fire trucks around the neighborhood before a fire fighter’s water cannon douses all those willing to get soaked.
Saturday evening’s cocktail party features local favorite performer Mailvis, who should be right at home with this year’s theme of ‘A Night In Vegas;’ costumes optional but encouraged.
Sunday activities continue with the popular volleyball tournament and pool parties; concluding with the namesake feast. Families gather around a 900 sq.ft. tent stacked with fixings and enjoy barbecue chicken and pork while a bluegrass band serenades in the background. The weekend wraps up on Monday with a co-ed golf tournament.
Former residents are especially invited to return and celebrate this 35th Pig Picking weekend. Itinerary and registration forms are on the Westcliffe Civic Association’s website www.westcliffeworld.com. Admission for all activities is by prior registration only.
