HEBRON, Maine (AP) — The Redneck games are returning to Hebron for the third successive year.
The town’s Board of Selectmen granted a mass gathering permit for organizer Harold Brooks last week.
The games drew about 2,700 people to Brooks’ farm last year, who watched and competed in events including bobbing for pigs’ feet, toilet-seat horseshoes, lawn mower races, and a pie eating contest.
The Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/12BmFAd ) reports that about the same number of people are expected this year.
A demolition derby, live music and a beer tent are also planned for this year’s event scheduled for August 1 through 4. Some proceeds will go to charity.
The games were originally dubbed the Redneck Olympics, but are now officially known as the Redneck Blank after the real Olympics threatened to sue.
