Pigs and kids alike were squealing at the Webster Parish Fair Wednesday night.
Most of the kids who were squealing were on the Zipper or ferris wheel, while the pig (and some kids’) noises were coming from the livestock barn.
Approximately 22 4-H’ers exhibited pigs during the annual livestock show.
Paige Sanders won grand champion in the swine showmanship, and reserve grand champion pig went to Kaid Sanders. In the market class, Abby Caraway took another grand championship, while Lainey O’ Neal was reserve champion.
