Hog Wrestling at the Porter County Fair

I love the county fairs.
No seriously.

Somewhere between the rather odd combination of food vendors( "Hot Wisconsin Cheese!", Dippin Dots and deep-fried vegetables all within 10 feet of one another, Sweet!), 4-H kids running amok during the day and events like Demolition Derby and Hog Wrestling at night.

Hog Wrestling brought 4-H'rs, farm boys, city slickers and former County Fair Pageant Queen Moms into a pit of 8-10 inch deep water with one goal in mind: Get the hog on the tire.

I left covered in mud, but because of proper precautions, my gear escaped with minimal mud.
However, I think my old Converse will never quite recover.

Thanks for looking
