Default Worm Gruntin' Festival in Sopchoppy, FL

So OK, I guess Sopchoppy needed SOMETHING to put it on the map, and I guess this was the best they could come up with, under the circumstances.

Connie and I have been threatening to go to this affair for years, so we finally just bit the bullet and went this year. First time I heard of it I just figured there were some mighty strange earthworms in Sopchoppy, and made a mental note to never go there looking for them. But no, this is a technique the locals use to drive the earthworms out of the ground, and from what I understand was a major source of income for a lot of people in the area. I guess like anything else, a natural resource can get depleted, as it's not the thriving industry it used to be.

I think the kids there would have had a lot better luck had the area chosen not been so dry and hard packed. But still, they didn't do too bad at it, I suppose.

Lots of vendors there selling food items (no worms, however) and trinkets of various varieties. So if you have never been, maybe it's something you might want to put on your bucket list. Or not......
