SALLEY — Right on time after Thanksgiving Day’s turkey, comes the Chitlin Strut in the Aiken County town of Salley.

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.
