The last weekend in October is Beanfest weekend - the weekend thousand of people come to town for free beans, outhouse races, and music, music, and more music.  The cool temp today didn't seem to deter the crowds.  This is one of the 38 pots of beans.  The pots are set up the day before.  Cooking starts at 7AM.  Beans and cornbread are served at noon.

This photo was taken just minutes before noon when hungry folks are crowded around the bean pots for their free beans and cornbread.

At 1PM there is a parade of outhouses and the outhouse races begin at 1:30.  One person sits inside and steers the outhouse and two young, strong guys push it up the hill.  It is a silly but fun event.
