Kids and adults alike stopped on the busy avenue to snap a photo with Adrian in the inflatable pig costume, and place an entry into a drawing to give the pig mascot a name. As one might expect, there were plenty of entries of existing famous and/or trademarked pig names; i.e. Porky, Piggy Wiggy, Hamm, but a couple of original names stood out above the rest: Squeely and Scrappy. After polling online followers, the official name of the Seely Homes’ Apple Scrapple Festival mascot is … Scrappy!
Scrappy certainly made an impactful debut, posing for pictures, boosting scrapple sandwich sales, putting smiles on faces, and even dancing in front of the bandstand. Keep an eye out for him next year!
