Suey, Suey, Suey, here piggy piggy!
That is just one of the noises that will be heard from the Lincoln Stage on August 16th. Starting at 3:30pm you will hear calls such as these ringing through the fair grounds.
Hog calling isn’t the only sound you will be hearing though, we will also be having a husband calling contest. Now ladies, I know we all have that special way of getting our man’s attention when he isn’t in speaking distance. So why not enter into the contest and see if all the practice of yelling for your man over the years has payed off!
Entries into the husband and hog calling contests can be as original as you want. Weather you yodel, sing, bark, yell, or whisper to get your husband or hogs attention, come on out to the Lincoln stage, on the 16th, to see if your call will win.
You can register for this fun filled event one of two ways. The first way is to come on the 16th, 30-minutes before the contest begins and fill out a form to enter. The second way is the guaranteed way to get your call on stage and all you have to do is email Teagan.Smith@illinois.gov with your name, age, and the county you are from. We will take down this information and then all you need to do the day of the contest is to show up and call away.
This year’s husband and hog calling emcee is Rita Frazier. So get those registrations in and come out to the Lincoln Stage, at the Illinois State Fair, on August 16th at 3:30pm to participate in the laugh filled, family fun event!
