Free Food, Music, Cars, Animals; Saturday Pigapalooza Open to All

SEP 15, 2015

If you are under the impression that you belong wherever there is something interesting to see, then Pigapalooza might qualify for your consideration.

Held this Saturday, Sept, 19, starting at 4 p.m. and lasting at least until 8 p.m. when the fireworks go off - at the Ransomville Free Methodist Church, 3924 Ransomville Rd.

It’s free.

At 4 pm musical acts appear on the main stage starting with Lily Among Thorns, with Cheyenne Cleveland.

Around the grounds the WNY Corvette Club and Cataract Cruisers Car Club will bring their cars to display.

Shenandoah Acres is bringing their petting zoo and offering free pony rides.

It will almost be a menagerie with Buffalo Zoo Mobile and Wild Kritters Of Niagara displaying wild animals injured and rehabilitated on hand. 

There is bounce house, face painting by Amy, make your own t-shirts and the Wing and Rotor Club will fly overhead.

At 5 on the main stage is Uncut Stones with Melanie Browning on vocals.  Joanne Lorenzo, founder and director of the Magdalene Project, will make an inspirational speech at 7:00.

There is The Injest variety show. 

The country dinner includes pulled pork (smoked onsite), beef hot dogs, fresh baked pizza, homemade macaroni salad, applesauce, cookies, donuts, gourmet coffee and an assortment of cold drinks.

Dunkin Donuts, Orange Cat Coffee House, Favorites Pizzeria, Billy Mac's, Rocky's Too, Main Street Gas and Grill, McDonald's, CWM, Hardison Funeral Home, First Niagara Bank, and Kipo Motors all contributed to the event.

While the event is free, a donation jar will sit quietly at the registration desk, and at the food and coffee tables.

An offering will not be taken; there will be no collection.

Making a donation is not a requirement to enter and enjoy the event.

And no one will note if you slip in, eat up a storm, dance to the music, ride the ponies, pet all the goats and lamas, listen to the speakers, get your face painted and come back for seconds on the pulled pork and then maybe drop a button or nothing at all in the donation jar.

Last year, more than 1,200 people attended the free event, according to event organizer Robert Moore.

The Ransomville Free Methodist Church is led by Pastor William Lowery. His church is the area food bank and has a used clothing drop off, assisting around 200 local families a month.

The Pigapalooza, its organizers hope, can help connect people in need of free food and clothing.

Pastor Lowery invites everyone to come enjoy the food and entertainment and meet the people of this community.
