But this little piggy stayed at home. Why?  Maybe one was white, the other black. Discrimination on the part of the farmer? Just a joke.

In Baltimore Maryland, there is a subdivision known as Pigtown. This section of Baltimore in the past was filled with slaughterhouses. Pigs came into town by the railroad B&O. The less educated worked in these houses, mainly whites from Appalachia, West Virginia, and blacks who could not find work elsewhere.

Over the past 40 years, PIGTOWN has undergone a transformation, more so with Caesar’s building a casino on the main drive, and in walking distance to Ravens Football stadium, and the Orioles baseball at Camden yards.

This October I was determined to witness the Annual PIGTOWN FESTIVAL.
