"Ambassadors of Pork" Does Not Refer to Politicians for Once

Ah, yes... it's late summer again, when Ohioan's thoughts turn to keeping cool, going back to school, and pork.

A 36-year tradition will continue the weekend of Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 16-17, when thousands of craft and pork chop lovers will converge on the Preble County Fairgrounds for the annual Pork Festival.

From racing pigs to the famous pork chop smorgasbord, musical entertainment to pig-shaped sugar waffles, the Pork Festival promises something to suit every taste.

Pageant fans please note: there will not be a "Miss Pork 2006" this year as organizers have revamped the coronation system. Instead there are Pork Festival "Ambassadors" (ambassador, teen ambassador, junior ambassador and youth ambassador). Congratulations to all of the 2006 Ohio Pork Ambassadors!
