  Outhouse Race
by kazander

Dushore is a little tiny town in Northeast Pa. They are the only town in Sullivan County with a traffic light if it gives you any idea how remote this area is.
The Big Day in Dushore is Founders Day in Mid-August. I think it's generally the 2nd Saturday of the month. There are BBQ's set up, items for sale along the Main Street , the Keg races and most importantly, the Outhouse Race! I have never seen anything like this in my life! Competitive teams of 4 build their own unique outhouses and bring them to race down the main street of the town. Contestants race 2 at a time (there isn't room for any more than that!) in heats. The team with the fastest time wins. You won't want to miss it!!!
