Noah's Pig Races
It is not always the fastest pig that wins the race, it is sometimes the smartest pig. Usually in a deep sleep, Noah’s Farm pigs hear the Bugle Call and they hurriedly run into their starting box to await the commencement of the race. See all the action of these little guys at our 2017 show.

The Tractor Pull is a fun crowd pleaser with lots of grunt and noise for those that enjoy big powerful machines.
The object of the Tractor Pull is simple, to pull an ever-increasing load further down a dirt track than anyone else in your class.A puller does not have to go faster than a competitor, only further. Unlike other forms of motor sport, there are no eliminations. Once a class starts the competition continues until a winner is determined.Should more than one competitor clear the 100-metre mark, then the sled has more weight added and the tractors who ‘Full Pulled’ competes again to determine an outright winner.
