Lucky the Carp

For more info on the World Famous Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin Carp Drop check out my other posting here.

Without further ado here are the pics!

Lucky on his pedestal

You can touch or kiss Lucky for luck.

The mayor of Prairie.

The outgoing Queen and King. Note the temperature gauge and the carp scepter!

And the incoming!

Besides hearing a man arguing with his significant other about actually going to the carp drop where he told her "it's just a carp. If we go home I'll throw a tuna off the counter for ya" and hearing another guy walking past saying "whoa my beer's freezing up," the funniest thing was seeing the maps they had for people who had come from out of town to mark where they were from. To keep them from rolling up or blowing off the table they were held down by, what else, chunks of snow!
