We Race Outhouses!
Only in Trenary, Michigan!
You've never heard of an outhouse race?!? Well, take a few moments to read all about it - you'll at least be smarter about something you've never ever thought about before! Better yet, you'll decide to believe it when you see it & come join us!
WHAT: Homemade outhouses made of wood, cardboard, etc. which are built on skis and pushed by 2 "racers". Each year has a different theme. 1998 theme = The Fifth Ever! and the logo incorporates a fifth bottle with an outhouse inside it! Some outhouses are built for speed, most are funny & some are so elaborate you wouldn't mind having one in your own backyard. The outhouses are pushed one-by-one approx. 500" down the Main Street in Trenary, Michigan (in the grand Upper Peninsula).
WHO: Anyone who has a sense of humor - or needs one! Some folks like to build, some like to race and EVERYONE likes to watch! In 1994 we started out with 20 entries; by 1997 we had 60 outhouses!
WHEN: Every last Saturday in February! (Yep, that makes it an annual event!) This year is February 28, 1998!
WHY: FUN! FUN! FUN! Great stories to tell your friends!
In addition to the races, Main Street Trenary provides a day of fun with volleyball games (you got it - IN THE SNOW!), entertainment, games, food, crafts and other vendors. Profits are distributed to organizations and community members who experience some type of hardship in the coming year.
