Why? Episode 61- Fruitcake Tossing in Colorado (Bonus Episode!)
Jan 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 60
Heidi Hedquist/ Luke Poling

After the holidays have come and gone, you might find yourself surrounded by fruitcake. What's a person to do? Why not head outdoors and try throwing it as far as you can?

That's what they do every year in Manitou Springs, Colorado, where they have thrown fruitcakes for the past 24 years. We talked with Jenna Gallas from the Chamber of Commerce about the annual tradition, how it got started and, more importantly, where they get their fruitcakes from.

This year's event is being held this Saturday, January 25th from noon to 2:30. There'll be costume contests, a bake off, and, of course, the fruitcake feats of strength. For more information, check out their website.

Enjoy this special bonus episode of the show and we'll be back on Monday with more Why!
