Thousands are drawn to this community each Saturday after Thanksgiving to celebrate this unusual food item that has been a southern tradition for over 100 years. Activities also include a parade, hawg-calling and strut contests, food and craft vendors, beauty pageant, carnival rides, and a Chitlin Strut Idol Contest.
Still wonder what's a chitlin'? Chitlin's, a contraction of the word chitterlings, are pig intestines and the people of Salley fry them by the ton during the Chitlin' Strut.
