A Celebration of Trombiculidae

Last weekend in Commerce, TX, was the Bois d'Arc Bash, a yearly fall event centered around the bois d'arc fruit (also known as the osage-orange, horse-apple, or hedgeapple). Not to be outdone in thematic goofiness, the neighboring town of Cooper chooses to focus on chiggers:

Some might go to see the Lil' Miss Chigger Pageant, but I'd go for the Elvis impersonator. I'm sure he'll be itching like a man on a fuzzy tree.

And remember...vendors galore!
