Fruitcakes Are A-Flyin’ in Colorado Today!

/ by

Sure, you COULD re-gift those nasty fruitcakes you got over the holidays but wouldn’t you rather launch them into the air?!

The good folks in Manitou Springs, Colorado would!

They hold an annual event called the Fruitcake Toss and today from 1 PM to 3 PM, fruitcakes will be a-flyin’!!


People are encouraged to bring their own fruitcake, though some will be available to rent. 

There will also be a “Too Good to Toss Fruitcake Bake Off” where bakers compete to become the Fruitcake King or Queen by making their best organic, non-GMO, natural fruitcake!!


Launch those fruitcakes!!

    It must be a grand spectacle … It is a pity that I can not take part. If only virtually … I wonder, by the way, how will look like if throwing fruitcakes at a rate 1000 gigabyte per second?
      Okay, right now, I’ll go out on the street……… and I’ll throw my fruitcake towards Colorado. In solidarity, so to speak. Thanks for the information, Pee-wee!

  • Very colorful & charmingly cosmic blog Paul! Wishing you a wonderful day! ❤?

    I had fruitcake when I was younger; I didn’t like it. So, this is a great idea!
