World Championship Outhouse Races Coming this Weekend
The 27th Annual World Championship Outhouse Races come to Virginia City, Nevada, on October 1-2, 2016.
The Races pit teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other. One person rides and the remaining team members push, pull or drag the decorated outhouses down the racetrack. This event is free to the public and is quite the spectacle. So don't miss out!
This fun and hilarious event marks a moment in history when the townspeople once took their outhouses to the streets and marched to city hall to protest new ordinances that outlawed outdoor toilets. Since then the event has become an annual tradition to relive history and honor the golden age of outdoor plumbing!
