My question was "What do they do with carp?" Where I'm from they might catch them, but most people throw them back as they are not considered the best eating fish.
The contest is for the largest carp caught. This was a pretty big carp, I'd say.
The contest is for 4 days, so they just leave the carp laying out until the festival is over. Yuck!
But the park where the festival is held is on a small lake. Lots of people bring their boats to the festival instead of driving their cars.
They had bands playing throughout the festival. Some were good and some weren't so good.
On our way back I spotted this unusual looking building and had to take a closer look. It's not really built as a castle, just remodeled and painted to make it look that way. It is now a tattoo parlour.
But our real reason for being in the area was the Nascar Sprint Race on Sunday.
I even got my visor signed by Joey Logano, one of the youngest Nascar racers, he is only 20 and this is his 2nd year of racing.
And they had this Monster truck too.
And a little miniature race car as well.
But all that was outside the racetrack. We got there early to get tickets and our race scanners, so we had lots of time to wander and participate in all the vendor activities. Now it's race time.
It's almost time. The cars are lined up waiting for those famous words, "Start your engines".
We had great seats on the 4th turn. We were high enough to see all the turns, and
had a great view down to the pits.
