I love Colorado, but I even love it more after finding out about this event today. Not only are we the state with the mountains, and Casa Bonita, but we have an event based on nothing but throwing fruitcakes.
I am convinced that is what these things were made for, because no one actually eats them, right?
For the 23rd year, Manitou Springs will host the event that has competitions like Hand Toss Distance, Accuracy, Speed, Best "Balance"Robotic, mechanical, 3-man slingshot toss for distance.
There will also be a baking competition for those who actually think of fruitcake as food.
Best of all, one non-perishable food item for donation to the local food bank is all it'll cost you. Cakes are also available for rent for $1 per cake.
