Beef-A-Rama, Meat on the Street.

We have wacky stuff here in WI. Things that are only found in my lovely state. This weekend was the 44th Annual Beef-A-Rama. Oh, you're reading it correctly, I did write "Beef". It officially started Friday with a "Beef Eating" contest at the local Culver's. Followed by a Street Dance-Downtown. The real festivities where held on Saturday. The morning started off with the "Rump Roast Run". At noon the "Moo Calling Contest" had taken place. Now while this is all happening so had the Craft Show, live music, beef cooking/grilling, shopping and other store front specials. What's this you say? Beef cooking and grilling? Oh, yes... See, all the Downtown shops participate by cooking Beef. Usually on the street and while dressed as cows or in a lot of Holstein print. There are awards involved and a "Parade of Beef" down Main Street to the park where the sandwiches are made and sold. Only in a small town in WI. could the health department look the other way as the roasts roll by. And maybe that has something to do with the 10 thousand people who attend this yearly event. Beef-A-Rama... I love my meat even on the street.

how is it that I've lived in WI for 2 years and have never heard of this? My husband would be all over this.
