Moose Dropping Festival
For four decades, Alaskans would celebrate the coming of summer by looking for moose droppings. You read that right. They intentionally look for moose poop on the ground, which they used to create jewelry. You read that part right, as well. Who’d have thought that varnished poop could make excellent pendants and earrings? This is a festival that we’d be more than happy to watch from afar.
However, the government prohibited Moose Dropping Festivals in 2009 after several locals were swept away by fast currents, never to be seen or heard from again. This was probably for the best, but we’re still quite saddened to hear that nobody will ever celebrate Moose Dropping Festival ever again.
