Deep Fried Ambassador: Racing Pigs Edition

This is a guest blogger post by our Official Deep Fried Ambassador, Ashlee. We’ll be reposting her State Fair adventures from her Miss Ashlee blog throughout the Fair.

Points for Procuring a Post at the Popular Proceedings of Pigs!

Next to the Harley-Davidson booth and the wee little zoo (with a camel I might add) is the Hogway Speedway… where fabulous little critters race for nothing less than cheeeeeese dooooodles! (Said in deep announcer type voice!)

To watch the performance of the petite potbellied porkies in action, though, here are several snip-its of suggestions.
1) Get something to eat. Or maybe two things. Or one really big thing. Like a turkey leg.

2) Go early… Seriously. I’m not kidding… and while you wait, eat whatever you just purchased. You need to go early because here’s what the stands look like…
30 minutes before the show…

Standing room only folks… for every show!
3) Scream your head off to try to get picked to ‘drive the car’ (If you don’t get that comment, it’s okay… just go to the Pig Races and you will). This may be the only way you’ll get a ribbon at the State Fair so give it your all!

p.s. costumes totally help your cause! (and teachers rock!)

4) Enjoy the show!!

5) Pucker up….

cause you never know when you might have to kiss a pig!
