Cel­e­brat­ing Dildo Days

The Compass - - TRINITY SOUTH - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BYNICHOLASMERCER THE COM­PASS

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.
