When they arrived at the fair, Greg and Rodrick along with their father go and eat fried butter on a stick which their mother should have told them not to eat because of her dislike for fried food. Greg and Rodrick go to the Foulest Footwear contest, Rodrick wins it and it is sent to the national competition and he gets a free butter on stick because of the coupon he won. Later in the livestock area, Manny guesses 243.1 which was the closest to weight of the hog for guessing nearest to which there was a competition, this turned out to be the actual weight. They win a live baby pig and judge wasn't allowing to have it returned to him despite attempts by his mother to tell him that they didn't want the pig. They later drive away.
