The 30th annual World Championship Outhouse Races is yet another uniquely Nevada experience hosted by Virginia City. Dating back to a time when outdoor plumbing was outlawed on the Comstock, angry residents took to the streets in protest with their outhouses and a tradition was born.
This hilarious free event pits teams of costumed racers against each other in an all-out potty sprint, pushing their home-made outhouses down C Street toward the toilet paper finish line and the latrine title.
The Parade of Outhouses begins Saturday at noon with races immediately following.
