3 or 4 times a day these world famous pigs will tear up the track as the crowd cheers. This is not to be confused with Churchill Downs. The pigs are somewhat smaller than horses and a lot funnier. Next door, they have pony rides, a 100 animal petting zoo, and a giant pig. These swift swine will entertain young and old.
White Tiger Display
There has not been a white tiger born in the wild since 1958. Doesn't mean it hasn't happened but nobody's seen it because its one in every ten thousand births. So when you only have 2500 animals in the wild it could be centuries before you see it on your own. Come see them at the Georgia State Fair.
