Centennial Farm welcomes a new litter of piglets, plus more things to see this week at the OC Fair

There’s a new set of piglets at Centennial Farm! Violet, the Farm’s 2-year-old pig, gave birth to piglets a little after midnight on Saturday night.
“Everyone’s gone hog wild about the birth of Violet’s piglets!” said Evy Young, Centennial Farm supervisor.
In fact, the Farm will be planning a birthday party for the piglets on Sunday, July 30. Keep an eye on your inbox for an invite.
In the meantime, you can visit the days-old piglets at Centennial Farm anytime during OC Fair hours, which resumes on Wednesday, July 26, at noon.
