Pig Roast in the mountains near Pahrump

The Mountain Springs Saloon put on some entertainment in the elevations at the end of August during its monthly event.

The Mountain Springs Saloon entertains several guests during its Pig Roast event at its saloon that sits at an elevation of 5,490 feet at 19050 Nevada Highway 160, near the top of the hill on the way to Las Vegas from Pahrump.

The last event was on Aug. 26, the day of the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas.

The parking lot was lined with cars, trucks and motorcycles for the monthly gathering.

Two more events are planned for the 2017 season, as weather keeps the establishment from running the gathering all year long. The event picks back up in April.

The final two events for 2017 are planned for Sept. 30 and Oct. 28.

Start times for the next Pig Roast haven’t been announced but past gatherings have begun between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. and have run until about 5 p.m.

The cost for attendees to dig into a plate of pork and a side, along with one drink, is $10. One plate and three drinks is $20.

The Mountain Springs Saloon also holds a monthly Bike Night. The next one is later today. The event begins at 6:30 p.m.

The next Bike Night after that is planned for Oct. 13.
