SACKETS HARBOR, New York (WWNY) - At Old McDonald’s Farm in Sackets Harbor there are four speedy swine about to wrap up their racing season.

There’s Pig Newton, Elvis Pigsley, Albert Einswine, and Snoop Piggy Pig.

And every weekend they prove that pigs can fly.

“We’ve been doing pig races here for probably six or seven years,” farm manager Julia Robbins LeDoux said. “It’s an event for everybody: it’s quick, it’s like 10 seconds, but it’s fun and exciting and something you don’t get to see every day.”

Today, victory tastes like powdered donuts and apples.

The hogs are getting ready to hang up their racing hooves for the year, though. Old McDonald’s Farm has had a successful season, one you can enjoy for one more weekend.

“The corn maze is an Oz theme,” Robbins LeDoux said. “You can head up the Yellow Corn Road straight to Emerald City, get your pumpkins, see fall foliage.”

And, of course, hang out with the animals.

Old McDonald’s season only goes until Halloween, so be sure to race to see the pig races before then.
