    This weekend is our local Zucchini Festival. We have lots of arts and crafts booths, a zucchini recipe contest, a zucchini growing contest, a zucchini decorating contest, lots of community support booths, and tons of food booths where many use the zucchini as an ingredient. There is a child friendly area and a vintage car show. Thousands show us for it.
    What wacky festivals do you have in your area?????

    Here is a link to it.

    Auburn Corn Fest
    Bay City's Pig Gig

    Not too far from where I live are:

    The Broomcorn Festival
    The Cheese Festival
    The Covered Bridge Festival
    The Sweet Corn Festival
    The Apple/Pork ....

    At the Broomcorn Festival the semi-world famous(okay so it's just in this little corner of the world) Lawn Rangers always perform with their lawn mowers, brooms and weird outfits.

    Scotch Picnic in Hemlock?????? that sounds drunkenly poisonous. LOL

    More central Ohio festivals:
    Zucchini Festival in Obetz
    Tomato Festival in Reynoldsburg
    Pumpkin Festival in Circleville (aka Round Town)
    Ice Cream Festival in Utica
    Sweet Corn Festival in Millersport
    Memorial Day Fish Fry in Lithopolis (my dad's home town)

    That's all I can think of right now. And look, they're all food!

    Oh, how could I forget my very favorite: The Arts Festival, in June, right around my birthday. Lots of gorgeous stuff that I can't afford, and of course, more FOOD.
