50th STATE FAIR OPENS

Pig racing steals show at state fair
Carnival returns with food, games, acrobats on horses

In the end, there can be only one winner, and yesterday that winner was a pint-sized porker named Britney Squeals.
On the opening weekend of the 50th State Fair at Aloha Stadium, hundreds eschewed the sundry offerings of rides, games and funnel cakes to take in what has become one of the fair's most popular attractions: pig racing.
Squeals, a crowd favorite, took an early lead out of the gate and held off a late charge by rising star Hammah Montana to earn the win in the first race of the afternoon. Swillery Rodham Clinton finished third, followed by the mercurial Lindsay Loham.
In other races, Arnold Snoutsenhogger won by a snout over hard-charging Lance Hamstring and sawdust-chompers Jean Claude Van Ham and El Puerco Swifto, and Redneck Racers legend Jack Hogworthy beat a seniors field of Bill Spamball, Ham Salad and Larry the Bacon Guy.
"E.K. Fernandez fairs are really family events," said Marcie "The Pig Lady" Campbell, who announced the races. "This is so much more personal than other races we've been to. It's that aloha attitude. People here are just so nice and friendly."
Campbell and her husband Rick (alternately known as the Pig Whisperer) are one of three teams from Kansas-based Hedrick's Promotions who are overseeing the pig races this year.
