Start the ultimate American road trip with a cruise in a wild, psychedelic art-car in San Francisco, California. Then journey to a wacky culinary competition in Marlinton, West Virginia, where a heated roadkill cook-off is underway. Head north to gear up for an unusual race in Delaware, Ohio, where folks prepare for the annual Lawn Mower Race. Finally, set out for the shores of Delaware to the town of Millsboro, where residents blast pumpkins into the sky at the Punkin Chunkin' Festival.
Americans' competitive spirit reveals itself in some wacky ways, like the coffin race in Nederland, Colorado, which is dedicated to a dead guy and brings new meaning to the term "frozen stiff." Or the National Snow Sculpting Competition in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where snowmen go high-end while temperatures hit record lows. Then there's the Kinetic Sculpture Race in Baltimore, Maryland, where crazy contraptions speed across a gritty land and sea racecourse. And don't forget Spamarama, a festival in Austin, Texas, which centers on, what else-SPAM!
Redneck competitions, UFO festivals, amateur rocketry conventions and cardboard boat races...just a typical day in America.
Frogs legs, Bulging arms, sleight-of-hand and filthy feet, witness all the parts that make up our nation's wild celebrations.
