In a State with Plenty of Weird Festivals, Lombard’s Might be the Most Bizarre

The Land of Lincoln plays host to some of the more offbeat festivals in the Midwest. For example, we have the Turkey Testicle Festival in Byron, the International Horseradish Festival in Collinsville, the Popeye Picnic in Chester, and the Superman Celebration in Metropolis. Next month, Lombard will have one that makes the others seem pedestrian.

Make your plans to be in Lombard, Illinois for the weekend of October 13-15, because that’s their annual¬†Hardcore Hearse Club’s Haunted Hearse Show Weekend.¬†You may be thinking that there are lots and lots of different hearse festivals you could attend here in Illinois, but I must remind you that this is the largest gathering of hearses in the state!

The event is held each year by the Hardcore Hearse Club, which was formed in 2013 by a group of people who own their own hearses for spectacle, admiring them for their craftsmanship.

In addition to the hearse festival, other activities include a Zombie Prom, a Zombie Pin-Up, and Trunk or Treat, which some locals look forward to more than the car show.

Maybe even this guy will show up:
