PHOTOS: Piglet Racing!

Ham Solo, Kevin Bacon and the rest of the crew return to the Arlington County Fair.

Piglet racing returned to the 2012 Arlington County fair, with multiple four-round races held each day.

Each round was given a theme, and the four piglets involved were given names that put a pork spin on well-known characters or celebrities — from Ham Solo to Britany Spareribs to... well, to Kevin Bacon.

The piglets in the first heat were 12 weeks old and will soon be returned to the farm, according to Sue Wee Flying Pig Races. They'll be replaced by four 4-week-old piglets to train, which takes about a week.
