Take the road less traveled (and right around the corner) to undiscovered hometown glories this Saturday as part of the first annual International Obscura Day, a global celebration of the curious, the wondrous, the overlooked, and the under visited organized by the folks at Atlas Obscura.
Pound hammers and wrenches at a synchronized ringing rocks concert in Butte or Bucks County. Learn to craft hikaru dorodango (a.k.a. shiny mud balls) in Albuquerque. Or wander the legendary, medieval Poison Garden in Alnwick — for little to no cost.
Think you can top man-made wreaths at Leila’s Hair Museum in Independence? There’s still time to create your own eccentric expedition.
It’s a wacky world.
You’re just living in it.
