Pictures of pig races, pigs, piglets and pig tricks all delight tourists and vacationers seeking for family entertainment that you'll find in over 50 California fairs and countless festivals.


California pig races are all the rage. So are pig shows and pig tricks. Pig owners and trainers often state they believe these adorable creatures get a bad rap. We began compiling pig events and pig stats and found that in California, there are a few companies and individuals serving nearly the entire state with their running, jumping and trick pigs. Pig races are clearly the favorite activity aside from the petting zoos that include the mommy sow and her piglets at your local county fair. While some people adopt pigs as family pets, California cities vary in their ordinances that permit keep a pig in your yard or home. As a food product, ham and pork went into decline for a time, but seem to be doing pretty well, especially for holiday meals such as Easter. An entire restaurant chain based their business on the name, "Honeybaked Ham".


Would you like to swing on a star?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
his shoes are a terrible disgrace
He has no manners when he eats his food
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
you may grow up to be a pig

Oh would you like to swing on a star
carry moonbeams home in a jar
and be better off than you are
or would you rather be a pig
