Town to Use Pig on 'Groundhawg's Day'

Jan 26, 7:50 AM (ET)

LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) - A 65-pound pot-bellied pig will be called into forecasting duty when Lexington celebrates "Groundhawg's Day" on Feb. 2. "Lil Bit" will be looking for her shadow to help determine how soon spring will arrive.

"We're doing this event because of the heritage of barbecue," said Liz Parham, executive director of Uptown Lexington, which is planning the celebration. Lexington is famous for its pork barbecue in a tomato-based sauce. Lexington Mayor Pro-tem Larry Beck will lead the celebration, and local group "Whistlepig" will perform a Groundhawg Day jingle. The celebration will conclude with the release of
2,005 pink balloons, each with information about the event and asking people who find the balloons to call Uptown Lexington.
