Riley, an inquisitive basset hound, was taking in the sights yesterday at the 17th annual Easter Bash. An all day affair comprised of two main objectives. "Partying, and partying," said one girl.
As music lovers of all ages jammed to the beat, Ferlis Ellis was busy with his pig. "I like to call it my wild thing," he said. A thing of beauty, complete with potato necklace and red Washington apple. Slow roasted for over a day. "I marinated it with maple syrup and pineapple, so it should be sweet, hot, and wild," said Ellis.
Back on the circuit, Riley decided to pass on the bull ride, despite assurances of safety. "It's a lot of fun, we have one of the safest bull rides around,and no one's ever gotten hurt," said Danny Deaver.
Meanwhile, the whereabouts of a local personality was being sought. "Ashley Stacy. Is she going to see this? Ashley! Where's you're buddy?," said one man.
It was a dog day afternoon, best summed up by four friends. "Whoa!!!, Easter Bash 2003!"
