Celebrate the World's Weirdest Sport July 23-25
You might not know it, but Louisville hosts a worldwide championship sports competition every year. It's an old German street game and it's actually super weird! This July, go to the Dainty World Championships.
On the last Monday in July, the world will stop to watch the dainty championship. Okay, maybe the entire world won't stop. But the entire neighborhood of Schnitzelburg definitely will. Stop with them and get a look at this weird, wacky and fun event.
The festival begins on Saturday with a fundraiser full of live music, drinks, games, raffles and a lot of good times. On Sunday, go to Hauck's Corner. This is a historic place in the neighborhood and it's a great spot to learn more about dainty the sport and a little German history. Schnitzelburg has a strong German heritage.
Monday is the big day itself. Food trucks will line the streets and the beer garden will be open. Not ready to compete? Step into the batting cage and practice playing dainty. This is a street game that isn't really like anything you've ever seen before. The events begin at 5 pm with the national anthem. The open competition begins at 5:30.
