Hedrick Petting Zoo & Pig Races
HEDRICK PETTING ZOO AND PIG RACES
Joe and Sondra Hedrick have all kinds of animal attractions at their ranch just outside of Hutchinson, Kansas – and Salem fairgoers are lucky that they bring their unique petting zoo to town each summer.
Kids of all ages have a rare chance to get up close and personal with camels, donkeys, Pygmy goats, llamas and an assortment of other animals. It’s an exciting and educational experience for each and every fairgoer.
Along with the zoo come the famous racing pigs. A Salem Fair favorite – pigs with names like Lindsey Loham, Hama Montana, Snoop Hoggy-Hog and Oprah Swinefry – shoot out of the starting gates and barrel around the race track just to get to the finish line where a fresh Oreo cookie awaits the winner!
It’s fast fun for the entire family!
