Fire Ant Festival
Fire Ant Festival - 2nd weekend in October. Now where else would you find a festival celebrating dammed fire ants. They are a curse and bite with fury (I know). However, the festival is quite a day – a little wild and on the wacky side, with its Rubber Chicken Chunking Contest, Fire Ant Calling (don’t even ask me about this one), Fire Ant Round-Up, FA Diaper Derby, Gurning Content (ugly face making) and other crazy activities.
There are also saner, bands, floats, antique cars and cook-offs (hopefully not from Fire Ants). Hundreds of cyclers participate in a scenic 10, 25, 35 and 100mile bike tour on …. wait for it… Tour de FireAnt bicycle tour.
