Trenary Outhouse Classics

For the past 30 years, the small town of Trenary, Michigan has been the hot spot of the Upper Peninsula's winter for one simple reason... The Trenary Outhouse Classics. Homemade outhouses made of wood, cardboard, plastic, tape, grand piano crates, you name it they've tried it. The outhouses are placed on skis and pushed by two runners down the main street of Trenary. Join me as I experience all this small town has to offer, take a look into the history of this event, the "characters" it attracts, and who knows, I may even try to win it all for myself. It's race day in Trenary!
