Kissing pig caps Andrews Summer Festival planning

A performance by the Blue River Band will be one of the highlights of the Andrews Summer Festival, which starts Thursday, Aug. 21, and runs through Saturday, Aug. 23.

For Cathy Johnson, 12 months of helping plan the Andrews Summer Festival will be capped off by kissing a pig.

It hardly seems a fitting end for the festival committee member, but she admits it's of her own doing.

People paid to vote for candidates, of which Johnson is one, in the festival's Kiss the Pig contest and she encouraged people to make their voices heard.

"I went out and really solicited money," she explains, "not so that I could win, so that the money would go into the festival fund."
