About 30,000 people are expected to attend the 47th annual Chitlin’ Strut, which is set to kick off Saturday.
Chitlins or chitterlings are the boiled and fried intestines of a hog and people line up for the dish at $10 a plate.
Mayor Bob Salley says more than 20 food vendors and 40 arts and craft vendors are expected.
There’s also a pancake breakfast before the Chitlin’ Strut Parade at 10 a.m.
Santa Claus will be on hand for photos, there will be a hog calling contest, and a car and bike show.
