Yes, Virginia, there IS a National Hollerin’ Contest. And we’ve got the t-shirts to prove it! Actually, I was surprised at what a great collection of funny t-shirts that were for National Hollerin’ Contest Day!
Every year since 1969, on the third Saturday of June, the 49 regular residents of Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina, are overrun by 5,000 to 10,000 visitors who are there for the day-long extravaganza known as the National Hollerin’ Contest. What is a Hollerin’ Contest? It is exactly what it sounds like!
