Visitor Tips and News About Outhouse Races - Fur Rendezvous
Every year during a Festival called Fur Rendezvous (or "Fur Rondy"), people bring their homemade outhouses that they have decorated in various fashions downtown. One person has to be in the outhouse, and the others either push or pull it through the snow.
They also have snowshoe softball games. The people who are playing softball have to wear snowshoes. They also hold car races at the Fur Rendezvous Festival. The track is downtown, and it is made of ice.[Katherine Pickens, 09/30/2001]
