Okay, now you may proceed.

So INSIDER just informed me that there's an annual Shrek-themed festival in Wisconsin that's been going on for the LAST FOUR YEARS AND NO ONE'S FUCKING TOLD ME?!?!?!?!

IT'S CALLED SHREKFEST AND IT'S EVERYTHING I'VE EVER DREAMED IT WOULD BE!

It started out as a joke Facebook group in 2014, but a video editor and self-proclaimed ~Shrek stan~ Grant Duffrin and some of his friends thought it was real and decided to go. When they learned it was fake, they decided to make their fantasy into a ~reality~.

THERE'S LIVE MUSIC...

...DANCING...

...DRINKING...

...AND NOT TO MENTION A ~COSTUME CONTEST~!!!

THERE'S ALSO PLENTY OF OTHER GAMES, LIKE AN ONION EATING CONTEST...

"OGRES HAVE LAYERS, DONKAY!"

...PIN-THE-TAIL-OFF-DONKEY...

...AND A ROARING CONTEST!

Then finally, once the sun goes down, the ~perfect~ day is rounded out with a screening of the movie that started it all.
