If the press conference is any indication . . . the actual 25th Annual Labadie Pig Gig in August at Vet's Park in Bay City will be nothing short of a "Bash"!

Lots of heat, ribs, and entertainment was set up in the Labadie Auto Group service garage to announce the upcoming 2012 Labadie Pig Gig!

Members of the local media were on hand, anxiously awaiting the "Low Down" on the annual rib competition

The Labadie Pig Gig is celebrating its 20th Year Anniversary Celebration and has escalated the level of entertainment for this commemorative year. The Midwest Championship Rib Cook Off features rib competitors from all over the country battling for the title of "Best in the Midwest." There will be 4 full nights of national entertainment as well as Pig racing, the Charter family fun stage, Children's activities, Covenant Healthcare Hospitality tent, Coors Light Refreshment tent, Charitable fundraising booths, the Catholic Federal 5K Races and much more.

The Spin Doctors will be the beginning act of the 20th Anniversary Labadie Pig Gig's opening night, Thursday, August 2, 2012 in Bay City's Veterans Memorial Park.

The Spin Doctors are an alternative rock band formed in New York City in the late 1980's. Their debut album Pocket Full of Kryptonite was released in 1991. The album soon became popular commercially with hit singles "Little Miss Can't be Wrong" and "Two Princes," which would top out on the billboard 100 at 17 and 7 respectively.

Rock acts, Winger and Trapt will be the headlining performers for the Labadie Pig Gig's Rock night on Friday August 3, 2012.

Trapt has been making successful hit rock music since their first album in 1998. They have had 4 top 50 Billboard albums and 3 top 25 Billboard albums. Their self titled album Trapt, released in 2002 went platinum and elevated them to international fame with the Billboard singles "Headstrong", "Still Frame" and "Echo." They have continued their success with their next three albums Someone in Control, Only Through the Pain, and No Apologies all cracking the Billboard top 25.

Winger has been releasing music and touring successfully to enthusiastic fans for over 20 years. The band has two platinum albums, Winger and In the Heart of the Young, along with top charting singles "Seventeen", "Headed for a Heartbreak" and "Miles Away." These hits put the band at the top of the charts in the early 90's, and they were nominated for the American Music Award of Best New Heavy Metal Band.

Diamond Rio will be the headlining performer for the Sunday show of the 20th annual Labadie Pig Gig on August 5, 2012 in Bay City's Veterans Memorial Park . The weekend event runs August 2nd - 5th and organizers are hoping to reach the $1,000,000 mark in funds raised for area charities.
