Think you have what it takes to tame a speedy, squirmy hog? You might just want to check out the annual Wild Hog Festival in Sabinal, Texas. The event, now in its 22nd year is one of South Texas' most colorful celebrations. The festival centers around a wild hog catching competition where contestants enter a ring and attempt to catch and bag a hog then pull it across a finish line. The two-day event includes plenty of arts and crafts booths and tons of tasty fried food! While you wait for the festival to start this weekend on March 23, click to enjoy some photos from previous celebrations.
