The community supported the annual Dundee Sportsman's Club and the Dundee Mill & Park-sponsored annual pig wrestling competition on Saturday, July 27. Spectators cheered on their favorite "costumed" team as they witnessed a display of brain and brawn, skill and strength, and enjoyed lots of laughs.

The event included prizes awarded for the first place team with the fastest times of placing the hog on the padded barrel; and a cash prize for the best team costumes.

Family-oriented activities included games for all ages, raffles, kids activities, and musical entertainment.

Brats or burgers, along with roast "pork" sandwiches, kettle corn and beverages were served throughout the day.

The event is held an-nually on the fourth Sunday in July.
