Hog Daze Returns To Downtown Marion

Hundreds of bikers will be rolling into downtown Marion this weekend for the annual Hog Daze events that will be centered in the Ballard Field area just east of downtown Marion.

Music, vendors and various motorcycle-related events are scheduled during Hog Daze, which will run through Sunday.

Hog Daze commemorates Marion’s heritage with motorcycles.  In the early 1900’s, a motorcycle rider who had just won a race in Marion reportedly picked up a pig and took it for a victory lap.  The name “Hog” stuck and is frequented among bikers still today.
