Nation Ford High School
Future Farmers of America
Pigs used in the festival's pig races are born and raised locally and are trained by Nation Ford High School's award-winning Future Farmers of America. Each year the pig races are a highlight of the festival with many gathering to root on their favorite. The pig races benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The pigs are also a big hit with our queens, who each year pucker up for "Kiss the Pig" photos.
