|The high (or possibly low) point
of the 16th annual Winterfest in Mackinaw City was the International Outhouse
Races conducted on Saturday afternoon. There were 11 outhouses entered,
though some outhouses were used by more than one team, so there were at
least 14 teams competing.
It was a gloomy, cold windy day with a wind chill below zero. There was a warming area slightly out of the wind, but the snow had melted in that area and people wanting to warm up had to stand in water.
But there were still several hundred spectators.
