Piglet racing is a tradition at the Arlington County Fair -- and the little oinkers will take to the track at select times throughout the weekend.

A sign posted near the entrance to the fairgrounds, next to the Thomas Jefferson Community Center, lists the times for each day's races.

Four different pigs compete in four different themed races. The video above shows the Star Wars team -- whose members include Ham Solo and Pork Vader -- in one of the Friday night races.

Other races feature hurdles and water obstacles.

The video and article above were published Aug. 8. Photos from that day were added Aug. 11.
