The Trigg County Ham Festival, scheduled this year for Oct. 12 – 14, is already shaping up, says Cadiz Renaissance Director Leida Underhill, who also said two new activities are planned this year.

“We’re going to have a couple of new activities this year. We’re going to have a pirate ship down at the park for the children … so that should be a lot of fun,” Underhill said. “It’ll be the size of a camper, a drivable camper … It’ll be educational, plus the guy who drives it is the actual captain of a boat.”

The other new activity entails three professional chain saw artists making using chain saws to make sculptures out of cut logs. Underhill said they will be doing this in the parking lot next to the Trigg County Justice Center – where the sand sculptor made his piece at last year’s Ham Fest.

There is also a contest to see who can best spruce up and refurbish the concrete pigs around Cadiz in time for the Ham Festival, and by Wednesday, July 4, a winner will be drawn, said Underhill. She also said that there are already plenty of pigs that are looking good.
