A normal life is not worth living when there are so many crazy festivals out there year round. It doesn’t matter who you are. If you have any life within you, there is a festival for you that you will never ever forget. Face it. Freaks have more fun. While awakening your inner freakazoid may not be that easy, you can fix that problem with just a brief vacation.
The Redneck Games. You don’t have to be a redneck to enjoy a game of toilet seat horseshoes, bobbin’ for pigs’ feet, the hubcap hurl, mud pit belly flops or a good old fashioned watermelon seed spitting contest. The Redneck Games began in 1996 in response to jokes about rednecks hosting the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, and it has grown into a large annual event with 5,000 attendees in its first year alone. The opening ceremony begins with the lighting of the beer can torch. Another ceremony involves artistic renditions of the Dixie song using armpits as instruments. If you’ve ever wondered what bug zapper spitball is, then pay a visit to the Atlanta area in the summer. As it states on their website, “everyone and their butt crack is welcome—even Yankees.” All it takes is five bucks to get in.
