If you’re seeking light-hearted, entertaining fun, you won’t want to miss the 32nd Annual World Championship Outhouse Races… You heard it right… “World Championship.” LOL. This free event dates back to when outdoor plumbing was outlawed in Virginia City, and angry residents took to the streets with their outhouses in protest. And so a tradition was born. This hilarious event pits teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other in an all-out potty race, pushing their home-made outhouses down C Street toward the toilet paper finish line to claim the coveted latrine title. The parade of outhouses begins Saturday, October 2 at noon with races immediately following. Register to participate and/or get more info at VisitVirginiaCityNV.com.
