Celebrate all things muskrat — which once was a staple in the local economy and on local dinner plates — during two events in late February. First up there’s the National Outdoor Show on Feb. 23-24, with world championship muskrat skinning, as well as a muskrat cooking contest, and more. Then there’s the Crawfish Boil & Muskrat Stew Fest on Feb. 25, when you can sample muskrat prepared in all kinds of fun ways (muskrat quesadillas, anyone?). Plus the first-ever Muskrat Leg Eating Contest!
