Outhouse Racing in Breckenridge, CO

posted in: Travel | 0

I was spending the weekend up in Summit County Colorado and stumbled upon one of the silliest events I have ever seen, OUTHOUSE RACES!  The races were part of Kingdom Days in Breckenridge, CO which celebrate the mining days.  I will admit I was laughing quite hard at this event and all the contestants seemed to be having a blast.  What a fun afternoon of watching homemade toilets on wheels being pushed and pulled.  Many were decorated with a theme like the Emperor’s New Throne, Pooper Troopers and Constipation Proclamation with an Abe Lincoln riding on the toilet.
