There was so much juicy pork in all shapes and forms. Lot of crispy skin and even pig butchering demos, not for the faint of heart.
My favorite was the pork taco from Palo Santo.

The secret is getting there early, map out your top choices and go from there. Lines got longer later in the day. After pigging out, you can go bike riding on the Gov. Island, one of my favorite things to do in the summer, the view is spectacular.
