Wondering why toilets don’t get better PR? If you feel nature

calling this weekend, drive on out to the scenic woods of Granite Falls,

WA for the town’s two day Toilet Festival and the grand opening of the

town’s first public rest room.



The festival is no casual affair, however. It will feature a photography

display highlighting the outhouses of America and original works framed

with potty lids. Artists represent about a tenth of Granite Falls’ 1,500

residents, estimates organizer Bonnie Consentino, and locals favor

political satire.



’We have several congressional seats that are quite impressive,’

Consentino enthusiastically reports, adding that one creative soul

fashioned a porthole for the Exxon Valdez.



Executives from Kimberly-Clark, among the festival’s donors of

toilet-related products, will be on hand for the ceremonial

tissue-tearing this weekend, and a drawing is scheduled to determine who

gets to christen the new plumbing.



’Some lucky winner will get his or her 15 minutes of fame, if it takes

that long,’ Consentino deadpans.
