LARA CERRI | Times

Pigs belly flop into the pool during a race at the Baddest BBQ on the Bone and Fishing Slam at the Madeira Beach Municipal Marina on Thursday. Randy and Sharon Ross brought their Paddling Porker Show in which pigs race along a track and dive into a 24-foot-long pool called the hogwash. The winner gets an Oreo cookie. The event also includes barbecue, a kids zone and a fishing tournament. The porcine speedsters race again today at 1, 3, 6 and 8 p.m. Parking and shuttles are available at Madeira Beach Fundamental School. See video at tampabay.com/video.
