Picture it. Memorial Day Weekend. Sun, fun, and three giant pigs.
When my friend called to tell me about the event I thought of my family rolling over in their Jewish graves as I participated in what I imagined to be a weekend of utter debauchery. I saw hundreds of campers transform from their mild daytime personas to wild savage dancers circling a rotating pig on a spit a la Lord of the Flies. Poor Piggy.
So of course I went.
For a decade now New York state residents and other nearby friends have gathered in Walton, NY for a weekend of camping, drinking and eating. It turned out to be less wild frat partying and more relaxed socializing. I had a blast. Between the gorgeous environment, the flowing kegs, the swimming pond, the new friends, it was a weekend to remember. Oh ya, and the GIANT bonfire and real roasting were cool too 😉
Best enjoyed with a crew of friends and a large appetite.
Best part of the weekend was checking into a B&B on Saturday night before a treacherous thunderstorm hit the campsite and listening to the lightening, thunder and pouring rain from my cozy bed 🙂
All in all, if you ever find yourself hankering from some pulled pork on Memorial Day on the East Coast, do check out the Big Ass Pig Roast. You won’t be disappointed!
