Children’s games, arts and crafts, and face painting will be provided from 3 to 5 p.m. by the ISU Council for Exceptional Children.

Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door for those 12 and older. Admission is $5 in advance, $7 at the door for children 6-11. Children ages 5 and under eat free. Admission without dinner is $7. Advance tickets are on sale at Sandbaggers, Barrie’s Ski and Sports, and The Outdoor Adventure Center in the basement of the Pond Student Union.

The Pig Out is the biggest annual event for CW HOG. Proceeds benefit ISU’s CW HOG program by providing training for staff and volunteers, equipment, and financial aid to participants who would otherwise not be able to get the experiences that CW HOG has to offer. The confidence, self-esteem, and lifelong memories that come along with challenging oneself with outdoor adventures are immeasurable and CW HOG is committed to assisting with these challenges.
