Horse racing sure, dog racing maybe, but ostrich racing? This two-day March event traditionally plays host to more than 300,000 people and is truly an exercise in the wacky. Jockeys mount the giant beasts and off they go. For those with culinary courage, sample an ostrich burger. More traditional festivities include live music, parades, carnivals and science, technology and agriculture exhibits. Please note: ostrich racing may not actually take place.
