EAST DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) - Organizers of the Redneck Games, a Georgia festival that includes competitions such as toilet seat horseshoes and mud pit belly flops, say this summer's event is being canceled.
East Dublin City Administrator Larry Drew said the local Lions Club voted not to hold this year's event because of the economy, lower attendance and sponsors backing out.
Drew told the Courier Herald of Dublin that organizers decided to "take a break and see what happens next year."
The Telegraph of Macon reports that the Georgia Environmental Protection Division said the nearby creek and the Oconee River could be contaminated by bacteria draining from a restroom installed at Buckeye Park, where the games are held.
Drew said the decision to cancel the Redneck Games after 17 years was unrelated to contamination concerns.
