SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Sevierville's Pig Patrol went out on Thursday to deliver cash to people who were wearing buttons to promote an upcoming festival.

The Sevierville Chamber goes out at random and lets the first three people wearing Bloomin' BBQ & Bluegrass festival bottoms select a piggy bank. The banks contain money from $2-$100.

Thursday, two people were able to take home $100 dollars and they plan on using that on family.

"Helps with my children. It'll actually get her to go to a movie. That's what I was going to do if I won anything was take her to see a movie," said Chris Clarkson of Sevierville.

The Bloomin' BBQ & Bluegrass festival runs next weekend around the courthouse area.
