TripAdvisor has put out a list of the wackiest summer events. Corinth's Slugburger Festival made the cut.
2. Slugburger Festival – July 12 – 14, Corinth, Mississippi
Now in its 25th year, the annual Slugburger Festival pays tribute to Corinth’s local culinary delight. Comprising a deep-fried patty formed of beef and soy meal, the “slugburger” may be an acquired taste – but fervent fans of the unique sliders will be in their element at this three-day celebration in northeast Mississippi. This year’s not so fat-free festivities include the inaugural World Slugburger Eating Championship, in addition to a Slug Idol talent contest, carnival rides and more. General admission is free of charge on Thursday, $6 on Friday and $10 on Saturday.
