“You Never Sausage a Show”
The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs are a team of eight athletes who race four-at-a-time around a 100-foot track padded with wood shavings. Each show consists of three rounds of racing, with the championship race pitting the four fastest racers from the earlier races in the show. There is also one surprise feature before the championship race. The pigs run flat track and hurdles, and take their breaks in the luxurious, air-conditioned, “Piggy Penthouse.” When the heat gets too much, the two-legged crew members take refuge from the sun by joining the racers in their comfortable home-on-wheels. The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs are licensed and routinely inspected by USDA animal welfare representatives.
Harvest Hall includes many agriculture based kids activities featuring local products such as almonds, walnuts, rice, beef, dairy and corn. The building is staffed at all times with Chico State Ag Educations students to help guide kids and their families through the activities and answer as many ag related questions as possible. Kids entertainer Tanna Banana will also be strolling the building at various times each day as well as performing her show “Tanna Banana’s Storytime and Song”.
Agtivities include: milking a cow, collecting eggs from the chicken coop, pick walnut from a tree, shake an almond tree to collect nuts, pick potatoes from sand field, prepare clay ground for rice planting with a remote control tractor, play with tractors in the corn bin, roping a steer, petal tractor course, and ‘My American’ Farm computer game stations.
Get ready for Kid power! This year at the [Event], in [City], [Month Date-Date], kids ages 4-12 will get behind the wheel of a genuine John Deere or New Holland custom built, high performance pedal tractor and roar down the track to see how much they can pull and how far they can pull it. This is real power – pedal power!
Tanna Banana grew up on a banana farm down in the great state of Louisiana…after being blasted out of the area by a storm – she landed on the west coast. As she makes her way to “home” – she stops and visits fairs throughout her journey spreading the knowledge of Agriculture through dance, story and song! Join Tanna Banana at the Silver Dollar Fair for stories and singing.
