Pig Squealing ContestWritten by Lillian Tram on August 23rd, 2013
There are all kinds of strange contests being held all over the world. Some of them can be pretty outrageous like the smelliest shoes or the longest spit, the loudest burp and quite a few other strange ideas, so it only makes sense that there would be a pig squealing contest too.
Every year a bunch of people in France meet up and get dressed in pig costumes in order to get into character. Their performance is not only based on their squealing abilities, but also on how well they can imitate every single thing that pigs normally do. Including how they eat, how they roll and how they interact with each other. There are many who dress up in very funny ways and even kids have participated in the squealing and the entire event is very family oriented. Some of these people travel from all over France just to make it to the festival.
As you would imagine, the contest also involves plenty of wine drinking and partying. So you can be sure that by the end of the festivities there are going to be a lot of sore throats and drunken French people all over the place. This is definitely a festivity that any pig fanatic is not going to want to miss.
This kind of event goes to show just how much love people have for this beautiful animal. There are other places that hold similar contests with pigs. Some of these activities include pig races and others are for the best looking pig, the largest, etc. There are also many places that have popular hog calling contests all over the United States.
There is a lot of love for this animal in this contest too. They are always being pampered and given plenty of attention by all those that participate in the contest. If you happen to be in France when these contests are held, you might want to do some practicing and head over to the festivities to see if you have what it takes to be the greatest pig imitator out there.
