Motoring Mondays: Cow Chip Throwing Capital, Russell Springs

Since 1955, Russell Springs has featured an annual cow chip throwing competition. Competitors from around the state gather to take part in the contest, which includes men’s, women’s and junior’s classes as well as politicians and VIP classes.

The event is part of the community’s Old Settlers’ Day celebration that also includes a parade and a junior rodeo.

  The Cow Chip Throwing Contest happens annually on Labor Day Weekend.
