The dog days of summer will get a little wilder with the 32nd Annual Huck Finn Jubilee, happening June 13-15.
The event brings some old time Mississippi-style flavor to Southern California, and pays tribute to Mark Twains rambunctious heroes Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn with tomahawk throwing, a river raft competition, tree climbing, and more.
According to event coordinator Don Tucker, its not just kids going on wild adventures.
He says, The adults arrive all tense, but when they hit the park they transform. They climb windmills and trees, they party more, and go wild under the moonlight. All the things you dreamed about as a kid, like playing Kick the Can and Hide and Seek, are there. You really feel like its a different place and time.
Tucker says the festival brings together all the good things about American culture, and gives attendees a glimpse into Tom and Hucks world.
