MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- Organizers with the 7th Annual Middle Georgia Buddy Walk have a ton of events planned this weekend. It's all in an effort to support the Middle Georgia Down Syndrome Society. Dr. Monte Murphy stopped by Daybreak to share the details on the upcoming event.
The Buddy Walk will take place Saturday, October 20th at Mabel White Baptist Church in Macon. The event is from 10AM to 1PM.
PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - There isn't much time left to get to the Georgia National Fair. It wraps up Sunday, so before it gets packed up and moves out of town, you should check out Robinson's Racing Pigs.
Now a staple of the fair in Perry, Robinson's Racing Pigs have been as much a part of the Georgia National Fair, as heat is a part of our middle Georgia summers.
Randy Ross, part trainer, part owner, part pig enthusiast, uses Oreo's to get the pigs to race around the track in only six seconds.
"They love Oreos'", Ross explains.
The pigs know the first one around the track, get the whole Oreo cookie. That's what makes them run so fast.
They swim too. Pretty well, in fact.
And wait until you hear their names being called out.
"Britney Spare-Ribs. Arnold Schwarzen-hogger. Pretty much anyone in the spotlight we try to give a name to," Ross chuckles.
So if you're looking for a laugh, head to Perry this weekend. Check out Robinson's Racing Pigs.
