More Security for Salisbury's 'Pork In The Park' Event


SALISBURY, Md.- Vendors are getting ready for this weekend's "Pork in the Park" event in Salisbury. In the wake of Monday's bombing in Boston, security is at the forefront.

Between 17,000 and 20,000 people are expected to come to Pork In The Park this weekend to enjoy its food and activities. At the top of everyone's mind is security. Ian Drucker from Laurel said, "It's a concern and it certainly is a tragedy that it would happen yesterday. And we know that anywhere we go, any place and time, those things can happen."

That is exactly what local authorities want to prevent. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office met with event organizers Tuesday to discuss the events in Boston. The sheriff said to expect heightened security this year. 

"We will have aerial support this year," explained Sheriff Mike Lewis. "We will have additional canines assigned. This will all be a part of our patrol division here at the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, and I will be attending."

Despite the blasts in Boston, many people still plan on attending public events. This weekend at Pork In The Park, all bags and containers will be checked to protect the public and give peace of mind.
