The green pigs that popped up all over Edmonds Tuesday morning are headed for that big pigsty in the sky. That’s the word from City of Edmonds Public Works Director Phil Williams, who said Tuesday night that city workers on Wednesday will begin removing the bright green pig-shaped cardboard signs from public rights-of-way and city parks and disposing of them.
My Edmonds News first learned of the pigs when Edmonds Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Urban shared the above photos with us Tuesday morning. A little research by Urban discovered the source: www.seattlegreenpigs.com — which invites you to submit your email address to be entered to win a $1,000 cash prize.
Edmonds wasn’t the only place to be covered with pigs. They were blanketed across the Seattle area, and the company acknowledged on its Seattle Green Pigs Facebook page that “our little piggies are causing quite the commotion.”
But if city official stick to their plans, it appears — in Edmonds, at least — that the pigs will be long gone by then.
