in Minocqua, WI, USA
There's no doubt about it, inhabitants of Wisconsin go koo-koo for cows flesh. And they are damn proud of it. Every September since 1964, residents of the small town of Minocqua have been celebrating the Almighty with a bovine bonanza fit for a...Texas Longhorn. But what earns the Beef-A-Rama a spot in this book is their not-so-famous Parade of Roasts.
Yes, over 60 dripping roasts equaling over 1,200 pounds of mouth-watering moo-moo are paraded through the streets while silent onlookers -- one hand over their hearts and one eye to heaven -- stand patiently and drool. Chowtime is just around the bend. With factory line precision, volunteers carve, slice, fold and wrap that mountain of slow-cooked flesh into 1,000s of sandwiches for the carnivorous crowd.
