BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs is a must-see show at the Kern County Fair. The show brings out both kids and adults to the stands rooting for their favorite pig.

The pigs aren't from Alaska, but Bart Noll, the owner of the All-Alaskan Racing Pigs was born and raised there. The pigs are Gloucestershire Old Spots, which is an English breed.

"They're very photogenic and in addition, the behavior is really great," said Noll.

Spectators have the opportunity to take a photo with the winner at the end of the show.

"When Dallas lets the pig know that it's time to take the picture...the pig will look up at the camera. So we'll get a perfect portrait of you and the pig or your family in the pig," said Noll.

The little piggies on the team race each other this weekend every other hour beginning at 1:00 pm until 5:00 p.m. With the last show of the night starting at 7:30 p.m. on the Kern County Fairgrounds.
