Roseland celebrates SummerFest

After collecting $335 in his donation jar, Mark Parr won the
Kiss the Pig contest at Saturday's Roseland Summerfest.

ROSELAND — Sometimes the worst thing that can happen is getting first place.

For Mark Parr, as winner of the “Kiss the Pig” contest, that meant he had to smooch a pig Saturday night during the community’s annual SummerFest celebration. However, the good thing is that Parr won the honor by generating the most money among other contest contestants for the Roseland Community Center.

Donors contributed $335 to see Parr kiss the pig.

“It’s was for a good cause. It’s no big deal,” Parr said. “I was nervous and I was kind of sick to my stomach, if you want to know the truth of the matter.”
