World Championship Outhouse Races
October 4-5, 2014
The hilarious Comstock tradition is returning again to Virginia City October 4-5, 2014. The Races pit teams of costumed outhouse racers against each other. One person rides and the remaining team members push, pull or drag the decorated outhouses down the racetrack. This is great fun for the whole family! This event is free to the public and is quite the spectacle. So don't miss out!
This fun and hilarious event marks a moment in history when the townspeople once took their outhouses to the streets and marched to city hall to protest new ordinances that outlawed outdoor toilets. Since then the event has become an annual tradition to relive history and honor the golden age of outdoor plumbing!
The Parade of Outhouses will begin at High Noon on Saturday, October 4th with races to follow at 1 p.m. The races will begin again on Sunday at High Noon. Don't miss this great annual event!
