SHOWS FOR PET FAIRS
AND MALLS

The hottest act on the Pet Fair Circuit From California to Georgia was Valentines Performing Pigs ! Most participants at these events only think of "pets" as being dogs and cats.....watching an energetic pig fetch or skateboard is both unusual and humerous! In the world of live animal acts, few are actually pets. But the Valentine pigs were cherished family members that actually lived inside the home, so they were appropriate for pet fairs. The pigs entertained pet owners and piqued their curiosities too....Pet owners enjoyed the educational part of their show.

The porkers would fly anywhere and put on three shows a day for pet fairs. Caryn Cohan-Bates, Show Manager of the America's Family Pet Expo (largest in the nation) wrote about the pigs: "Everyone who saw Nellie and the Duchess of Pork was entralled by them. You and Steve added such a professional demeanor to the Expo and we are delighted you will be joining us in the (next) Expo". The pigs brought in people that packed malls, too. Malls hired the pigs for sale promotions and Kid's Club events. People would come out and shop just for the chance to see a pig ride a skateboard or golf. The porkers put people in a jovial mood, ready to browse and buy. Often the newspapers would do a feature on the pigs expected arrival, which brought even more curiosity seekers out to the malls. As always, the VALENTINE Pigs would steal HEARTS!
