Nebraska State Fair brings back pig races
This is the fifth day of the Nebraska State Fair and the rainy weather has yet to ruin the fun. People have been walking around Fonner Park enjoying the rides, food vendors and the different shows the fair has to offer.
One show that continues to bring crowds year after year is Hendrick's Racing Pigs. Four pigs take off around the track for an ultimate prize of an Oreo cookie.
"The crowd loves it, they can't get enough of it," Race Announcer, Tyler Kawa, said. "The louder the crowd cheers the faster the pigs go. I think kids just really like screaming so so the pigs go pretty fast."
The pigs were just some of many animals Hendricks brought to the fair. They also have a petting zoo set up for people to get to know the animals.
