We attended the 52nd annual Swamp Cabbage Festival in LaBelle, FL this winter. It is a big deal around here. It is such a big deal that even the Budweiser Clydesdales come for the parade! Sadly, we missed that part of the festival... maybe next year!
However, we did not miss the armadillo races! This was the highlight of the festival, in my opinion! The Rotary manages the races. Each race is sponsored by a local business and the armadillos are assigned interesting, appropriate names. For example, the race sponsored by the local pharmacy had armadillos named Viagra, Ativan and Pain Killer, to name a few.
