Annual Redneck Games...in Dublin!

Toilet seat tossing and a beer can trophy…it’s Dublin as you’ve never seen it before. Ok, ok, it’s East Dublin in Georgia, USA.

AN ARMPIT SERENADE, a toilet seat tossing competition and the mud pit belly flop contest. Just some of the events which make up the Redneck Games, which have just celebrated their fifteenth year in East Dublin, Georgia.

Touted as ‘more fun than indoor plumbing’, the Redneck Games raise money for local charities with the event increasing in size since its foundation in 1996 to coincide with the Atlanta Olympics.

Other disciplines on offer are Bobbing for Pig’s Trotters, Seed Spitting, Big Hair Contest, Hubcap Hurling and Dumpster Diving.
