Cozy up for a cause at Pigs and a Blanket

Just don’t hog all the covers at this camp out.

This opportunity for family fun will have you squealing with excitement. Make the 30-minute drive to Clyde for the Pigs and a Blanket camp out and community festival, hosted by local nonprofit Misfit Mountain.

The free festival takes place at 92 Incinerator Rd. from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, offering live music, food trucks, vendors, and of course, plenty of chances to cuddle up with the rescue’s pigs.

But the adventures don’t stop there — bring a tent or camper to hang out overnight with the pigs. Camping passes are $10 per individual or $30 per family. Don’t forget to bring your yoga mat because when you wake up Sunday morning, it’s time for pig yoga and donuts. Participate in a gentle flow while the pigs snack on sweets laid out on your mat.
