LEXINGTON, N.C. – The 32nd annual Lexington Barbecue Festival got a head start Friday evening with its first ever pre-Pig Shin-Dig.

"This is the one place you can go and you can find something for everybody," said James Queen, who has been coming to the festival for about 20 years.

About 150,000 people are expected Saturday when the festival starts in Uptown at 8:30 a.m.

In addition to the barbecue that's made the city famous, food vendors, music, classic cars, jumping dogs and children's rides will welcome the crowds.
