Redneck debauchery at its finest.

What: horse racing, 4wheeler riding, good country living, ice cold beer drinking, bullshitting, moonshine swigging, redneck fun.

Where: Pirtle Ponderosa

When: A Saturday in September – every year.

Why: Why Not?

Each year Pirtlefest evolves, but the common denominator year after year is good old fashion fun with family and friends.

Last year Clint had this harebrained idea to cook the pig in the ground.   His idea of roughing it?

Who knows…  

What I do know is it was quite the process for the guys.   Steps included a giant hole in the ground, multiple rocks buried to trap heat, wood for the fire, Wilbur wrapped in foil, burlap and fencing, machinery to bury the big guy, dirt to cover and hours to cook.

2015 Pig?   Definitely getting cooked in a roaster.  

Let’s just say the smell of that big guy after he was pulled from the ground was enough to run a skunk off.

 Folks come and go during the day as they please.  We are a laid back kinda crowd.

Chilling with friends on a nice fall afternoon?

How about a little 4-wheeler and dirt bike riding?

Sure!

Golf carts with gun racks are perfectly acceptable as well.

Did you think otherwise?

How about a little human fooseball?

Bring your shin guards and competitiveness.

Rules don’t seem to apply with this crowd.

Of course there is always the horse racing, obstacle course maneuvering and sledding.

What kind of party would it be without that kind of fun?

Need to burn past regrets?

Bring it out.  We’ve got ya covered.

But of course– the best part is simply the quality time spent with everyone involved.

Always good conversations, good people and great memories.
