I Can’t Believe I’m Going To Type This, But There Are Goldfish Races Happening This Week
Yes, Goldfish. Like, the little pet fish you win at the fair.
What is Goldfish Racing? First of all, it's a real thing that I hadn't heard of until I was today years old. Apparently what happens is, you have some fish, you make two little water "tracks" and then you squirt behind the fish with a water bottle and try to get him to go forward. I'm not sure why this is a thing, but it is, and I guess it's okay since nobody's hurting the fish. We as a nation are getting more and more creative when it comes to ways we can compete against each other.
And this race, what's it about, you ask? It's going to be a charity event! It's a fundraiser for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Johnson county. It's going to be held this Thursday, June 13th from 6-8 p.m. They're not just going to have the races, they're also going to have live music, karaoke, beer tasting, and a brisket dogs bar. It's going to be held at the Muddy Creek bar in Warrensburg, you know where that is on Holden.
You can buy your tickets in advance here. So you can have fun, enjoy some silliness, and know you're helping a great cause with the young children of the area.
