Moose Dropping Festival in Talkeetna, Alaska
The state’s official animal is the moose and the people of the small town of Talkeetna felt the best way to honor this majestic creature was by dropping loads of its fecal matter onto targets – first, from hot air balloons; then eventually, helicopters. No, really. They actually played aerial target practice with moose poop. The festival took place every July for 37 years until it was canceled in August of 2009.
