The 9th annual Peak City Pig Fest is this weekend in downtown Apex.

Over 40 cook teams will compete for more than $12,000 dollars in prize money cooking chicken, ribs, beef brisket, and pork in this Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) sanctioned event. The fun begins Friday evening with a beer garden, live music, and BBQ. Join Meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy as she helps judge the night's Anything Butt Competition at 7 pm and don't miss the rib eating contest between the Apex Police and Fire Departments at 8 pm. The public is also invited to check out the cook team competition area throughout the evening.

Then join Chief Meteorologist Don Schwenneker on Saturday for a full day of events and see which cook teams will win prizes.
