Annual Poison Oak Show in Columbia California

Saturday September 24 is the date for the 29th Annual Poison Oak Show. This is where competitors showcase their selections of poison oak just like a normal flower show. You can show off your best poison oak rash, or your baking skills involving poison oak. I didn’t know this existed either, but it sounds kind of cool; seeing how poison oak is incorporated into different arrangements. The competitors are judged on different categories such as best arrangement of poison oak, most original poison oak dish (with recipe), best photograph of poison oak, best photograph of poison oak rash (or in person). Come see for yourself if this is real or not.
