Pig Races

The Bearcreek Downs Saloon and Steakhouse hosts Pig Races every Thursday through Sunday from May to September(ish). If you like to gamble, you can place a wager and head out back to look down on a track where the pigs race in a circle, wearing different-color bandannas around their necks, for a treat of slop. Gambling proceeds go to a local scholarship fund, so you don't have to feel too bad if your pig doesn't win. They've got great food too. Fun for the whole family!
