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.
