Downtown Kennesaw was full of savory scents Saturday as the mouth-watering aroma of smoked meat wafted from Pigs and Peaches BBQ Festival in Adams Park.

What began in 2000 as a casual barbecue and blues concert with a handful of participants has grown to one of the region’s biggest barbecue festivals with an estimated 65,000 attendees, according to the city.

Though the meat was the main event, the event also featured musical acts on multiple stages, vendors selling everything from handmade jewelry to wooden pan flutes and even a fireworks finale.
