Hot Dog & Pig Races
These awkward, but cute and cuddly racing animals fascinate spectators. Real crowd pleasers, these natural comedians bolt from the starting gate and race around the track snorting and squealing, stubby legs churning and curly tails sailing along behind. Make sure you head out the the Niagara County Fair, where they will be performing several shows daily! View their website here!

In all the years he has performed Craig has never missed a performance date. He has never turned away any request to perform wherever he is called.

Not bad for a guy that never left the security of his small hometown of Akron, New York. http://www.craigwilkins.com/about.htm
