America's Wackiest State Fair Contests

Forget song and dance. America’s most entertaining talents are on display at these crazy state fair contests.

Redneck RelayRace, North Dakota State Fair

6 of 11

You might be a redneck if...you’re already planning to participate in 2012’s inaugural relay race. This multipart competition requires teams to “pan for gold” by eating through a mountain of whipped cream (no utensils!) to find three coins; toss four corn ears into a bucket; run a designated distance while balancing eggs on a spoon; “shear a sheep” by shaving a balloon; transfer “moonshine” (water) from mason jars to an olive container; and then “carry a greased pig” (a Crisco-covered watermelon) to the finish line. Jeff Foxworthy would be proud.

Where: Minot, ND

When: mid-July
