CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Pork Chop Downs is coming to the zoo! Come see the Show-Me Swine Racers at the Lazy L Safari Park on September 14-15.
The pig races will be held at 11 a.m., 1:30 pm, 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day. The zoo will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Zoo officials say to get ready to be entertained by Hammy Swynette, Christina Hoguilera, and Hammah Montana.
Magnum P.I.G. and Arnold Schwartzenpigger will also be racing that weekend.
The pig race includes three different species each running a separate heat race during each show. It will be snout-to-snout competition and will require crowd participation!
“The pig races are always a crowd pleaser and we haven’t had them here at the zoo since 2010, so we thought we would bring them back as part of our Fall Full of Fun events this year," said Vicki Lantz Zoo Director.
