“The running of the #piglets at the Great New York State Fair in #Syracuse, New York. Organizers claim that @nysfair is the oldest #statefair in the United States, dating back to 1841, or earlier. The pigs, which @Hezzikia photographed on Thursday, are trotted out onto a sawdust track and loaded into starting gates five times a day.

The pigs’ prize: @oreo cookies. #🐷” By nytimes on Instagram.
