World's Largest Washboard and Festival

The large washboard outside the building is easy to capture; disappointed we weren't there at the right time for a factory tour. We did, however, get to hear live music on the green -- featuring a local washboard!

World's Largest Washboard and Festival

This attraction is very underrated! The World's Largest Washboard is in great shape and such a unique find. The diversion from the highway is quick and worth it.

Giant washboard.

The giant washboard is easily visible outside, and really cool. Take the washboard factory tour when the virus is over!

Loved this! If you can, take a factory tour. We got to watch them make our washboards on the antique equipment.

Clothes lines at the Washboard Festival.

World's Largest Washboard and Festival

During the Washboard Festival, colorful clotheslines of laundry are crisscrossed above the street in lieu of banners and pennants. (Washboards, get it?)
