Pork and Plaid is an event in which you sew and create outfits for yourself and your pig, most often with plaid. There is also a costume division where you can let your imagination run wild.
There was one woman— Donna Miller— who was its biggest supporter.
For roughly the past 30 years, you could find Miller at the Kern County Fair for Pork and Plaid. Miller died in May, so this will be the first fair without her.
“It was fun you know, she really got a kick out of it and enjoyed it and it became a tradition for her,” said Miller’s daughter, Robin Rossi.
Pork and Plaid is Friday night at 7 p.m. in the swine barn. 17’s Tabatha Mills will be emceeing the event and it is sure to be an emotional tribute in honor of Donna Miller.
