After 20 years, Moravia is glad to be getting back in the tub; the bathtub, that is. Moravia’s bathtub races are back and it’s exactly what you imagine.
It’s part of Fillmore Days — which honors Moravia native and former President Milliard Fillmore. Rumor has it he brought the first bathtub to the White House.
“It’s more like silly fun so I think that’s what it is. People get a chance to goof off and decorate these elaborate tubs, and just have a good time,” said Joshua Marnell, Bathtub Races organizer.
Safety changes had to be made for the bathtub races to come back this year, including required brakes and steering on the tubs.
