Hillbilly Pig Races

Come on out and see the Hillbilly Pig Races at the Carroll County Fair!!!

Pig races have become one of the best attended events at fairs across the United States since the 1980’s so we started with our first “Hillbilly Pig Races” at the 2017 County Fair.  It was a hit with everyone who attended and “Swifty” the pig won the hearts of many!

This year we will try to have at least 4 pigs race in each race we have scheduled.  The pigs will be 6-8 weeks and older.  Each pig will be given a number.     A bugler will call the pigs to the track.

 

They will then start at the starting gate at the sound of the bell.  It will be one lap around the track and the checkered flag will signal the winner.  We need the crowd to be the cheerleaders for the races!  Each scheduled race will last approximately 15 minutes.
