Celebrating Dildo Days
The Town of Dildo kicked off its 32nd annual Dildo Days celebrations last week with numerous activities and events aimed at celebrating the town’s history and heritage. There was a sports day, a fishing contest, casino night and a Dildo Idol competition. The children’s sports day brought out a slew of young children to have their faces painted, toss water balloons and eat hot dogs. The Compass was there to capture all of the excitement of the sports day and all of the talent on display at the folk festival.
