Redneck Games Named in Top 10 Wackiest Summer Events

TripAdvisor announced the top ten wackiest events in the United States, according to TripAdvisor editors.

Summer Redneck Games, that takes place in East Dublin was named number 5 of the Wackiest.

Of the event, TripAdvisor says, "Travelers can get down and dirty in Dublin for this one-day event, which draws crowds of over 5,000 attendees each year. For those that don’t find bobbin’ for pig’s feet appetizing, visitors can also participate in the hubcap hurl, mud-pit belly flop contest, or even test their talent for tossing toilet seats in a round of “Redneck Horseshoes”. Winners in each event will receive a glistening, half-crushed, mounted beer can. Admission is $5 and free for children under seven. "

TripAdvisor named the Humungus Fungus Festival  in Michigan as the Top Wackiest Summer Event.
