East Carolina University Police said it will be business as usual for the Pigskin Pig-Out three days after a bombing at the Boston Marathon.

The annual barbecue cook-off party and spring football game, which draws thousands annually to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, begins at 5 p.m. on Thursday with carnival rides and runs through Sunday evening.


Lt. Chris Sutton, ECU police public information officer, said a police presence will be noticeable to the general public in an effort to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and safe experience.
