Event Profile: Ladies and Gents, Start Your Outhouse!
Not all events are centered around lavish floral displays, buffets of fine cuisine and silent auctions of luxury items. In the village of Nashville, Ind., the community comes together once a year to have fun and raise money for the We Care Gang, a local charitable organization.
The highlight of the weekend-long celebration is the World Championship Nashcar Outhouse Race. The race features an array of wild and crazy outhouses with drivers perched on their thrones and “pit crews” helping them along as crowds cheer from the sidelines. The outhouses start at the top of a hill on Main Street and “race” to the bottom. Teams are awarded points based on their performances, themes and amount of money raised, as well as the outcome of other events including a Corn Hole and Plunger Toss.
Even Hollywood glam can be upstaged by creative village folk!
