"We have more destinations than ever represented.  We also have a steel-pan orchestra from Lauderhill coming. They've actually won top honors in their contents. In addition, we also have a pig roast during the day as well in support of the U.S. Meat Export Federation that gives us all of our pork products that we use in our competition.  We've got a pig roast, we have more entertainment, more food, more people, and a brand new venue for us.
