5 Unusual Summer Festivals Across the US - as part of the travel series by GeoBeats.
Here Are 5 unusual Summer Festivals Around the U.S.
Number 5 -- Dublin, Georgia is home to the annual May festival called the 'Redneck Summer Games'. Fun loving crowds have increased since the first festival in 1996 with activities like hubcap slinging and 'redneck horseshoes'.
Number 4 -- Get your mermaid costume on and head to New York City for the 'Coney Island Mermaid Festival' in June. The one day festival is a celebration of summer, representing the ocean, sand and salty air with costumed mermaids marching down the street.
Number 3 -- Alien fanatics flock to Roswell, New Mexico for the annual, three day UFO festival starting in late June and early July. With humans and pets dressed in extra terrestrial costumes, E.T. lovers will surely have a blast!
Number 2 -- If you're looking for some off beat summer fun, venture to the Wisconsin State Chip Throw. Beat the cow pie throwing record of 248 feet, and enjoy typical festival activities like music and craft fairs.
Number 1 -- Gilroy, California has one of the biggest food festivals in the U.S., known as the 'Gilroy Garlic Festival', in July each year. Garlic extremists have their choice of garlic ice cream and an endless array of gourmet meals.
