The annual Kid's Classic fun wrapped up on Sunday.
At the Youth Museum children proudly showed off their furry friends for a hamster race and pet pageant.
One winner told 59News the trick for getting the hamster to run the fastest.
"His name is Fred and the trick is to peck at the sides and make him go the way you want to so that he will roll the right way," winner Strata Smith said.
The 2013 theme for the Festival was "West Virginia" in honor of WV's 150th Birthday.
