This is the show your parents warned you about. If you're looking for an old-skool, hell-raising weekend party, this is the event for you. Show promoters Glenn and Mike Pilgreen, with extra help from friends and family, have been entertaining folks in the Carolinas and neighboring states for the last seven years. The event is fun-oriented during the day and transitions to X-rated when the sun goes down. Drivers from throughout the Southeast began lining up at midnight on Thursday when the gates to the Wilson County Fairgrounds opened. After that, it was nonstop partying until the awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
