CANTON, GA -- The Cherokee Pignic, Cherokee County's most anticipated fall festival, is about to cook up some good food and good fun at Heritage Park (250 Riverstone Parkway, Canton, 30114).
The celebration begins on Friday, Oct. 15 with a stage full of exciting performances, a Halloween costume contest for kids and, of course, plenty of food. Children ages 10 and under will be admitted free on Friday if they come in costume.
The highlight of the event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 16: the Kansas City Barbeque Society-sanctioned BBQ Cook-off. Professional teams and amateur "backyard" burners are invited to compete for prestige, prize money and bragging rights at winning the hearts of a whole park full of barbeque lovers. KCBS professionals will be on hand to give demonstrations and judge the cook-off.
