A gigantic inflated pig sat on the roof of a building that overlooked the arena in which the pigs raced. Thus the All Alaska Racing Pigs could be found from anywhere on the fairgrounds.

The crowd of folks waiting for the race to begin appeared excited (at least in part) for the race to begin. The crowd may have doubled for the actual race.

The race announcer described what was about to happen well before it happened. Fortunately his presentation was sufficiently humorous to hold our attention.

A walking slice of pizza wandered past the race and paused to watch for a brief while. And then the walking slice of pizza continued on his (or her) way.

The start of the race was preceded by the announcer talking longer than expected. The race itself lasted only a few seconds once it started.

Pig with the number 5 on it, rounded the first of two turns. Notice how the wood chips were tossed up by the pig's speed.
