This Just Might Be The Most Unique Festival In All Of Arkansas
From peaches to purple hull peas, Arkansas has plenty of food-themed festivals. However, the Bean Festival is one of the most unique for a very unexpected reason. Mountain View’s annual festival is also the grounds for the Great Arkansas Championship Outhouse Races. You’d be hard-pressed to find anything more ridiculously southern (or fun) than watching these outrageous races.
