I'm going to Harrisburg in January for the PA Farm Show. 7 years ago, during the winter months after my daughter was born, I was flipping through channels one night and discovered the Farm Show. Its held the 2nd week of January every year, and has all sorts of whacky shit going on...my personal favorites:
Tractor square dancing...square dancing, but done with tractors
Sheep to shawl competitions...they shear a sheep an then use the wool to weave a shawl in real time (its a competition)
Celebrity contests like bunny hopping, grape stomping, etc...the word celebrity is used loosely
FARM SHOW FASHIONS....a fashion show of outfits made by 4H teens and some adults.
And horse pulling...both standard and mini horses pulling a sled full of weights for distance/weight.
Joked about goign for years, but finally pulling the trigger and going this january.
