The corn was piping hot and the roasted pig delicious as ever at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Legion’s pig roast Sunday afternoon.

People came out for some cold beers and to socialize in the hot weather as Legion member Calvin House tended to the roasting pig.

Normally an annual event, the pig roast was pre-empted by COVID the past two summers.

While there were some issues getting the large pig to roast properly on the spit early in the day, Debbie House said Calvin and his brother Tom were able to make the most of it and get the meat roasting for the afternoon diners.

People sitting outside the Legion were in good spirits, patiently waiting for the coming feast.

Lisa Pizzacala and Dean Gould came from St. Catharines to support the pig roast and said they were looking forward to filling their plates with roasted pork on a bun, hot corn on the cob and some fresh salad.
