Obscura Day 2010

Back in October, we blogged about Atlas Obscura, a collection of strange and interesting places that bills itself as a "compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities, and esoterica."

The folks over at Atlas Obscura decided that we need a special holiday to celebrate those crazy and interesting spots all over the globe, so they founded Obscura Day. It's going to be a "day of expeditions, back-room tours, and hidden treasures in your own hometown." On March 20, 2010, cities and towns across the globe are hosting celebrations. RSVP now to guarantee your spot!

It looks like there are a lot of Great Plains towns represented. None in Nebraska, though, which is too bad. They say that you can organize an Obscura Day celebration in your town, though. Anyone up for the challenge?
