The Rollercoaster Formally Used For Royal Transportation

Before the royal family befriended a herd of silver-horned-buffalo to carry them into town, they used a roller coaster which left straight from the palace dining room. Often they would leap into it on a whim and could be seen flying through town with chicken drumsticks still clutched in their hands and food bibs tied around their royal necks. Now the roller coaster lies abandoned, used only by Prince Eugene to practice his handstands.

The National Day of Crabbis Kapow

Historic picture of a Crabbis kapow, the native Klahtian crab that spontaneously explodes when excited. This image (courtesy of the Klah archives) is believed to have been taken on July 15th 1909, the day that crabs received the vote.

The Merman's Underwater Circus

Children in Tonkleham waiting for the Merman's Underwater Circus. The circus causes great excitement wherever it travels, and local land children don suits that enable them to breathe underwater - not like the scuba diving suits you may be familiar with, but actual 3 piece dinner suits that not only make them look swizzlingly important, but function like a set of gills.

*socks should ideally not be of flammable material

The Lunis concealis

Branches of Lunis concealis, the unusual tree only seen in the light of the full moon. The sap of L. concealis has superb medicinal qualities when applied to superficial wounds, however, due to its invisibility most of the time, it is also responsible for 98% of the injuries it helps to heal. This had lead to groups such as the OPS (Over Protective Society) and the CWB (Cotton Wool Brigade) calling for its eradication, which has in turn enraged environmentalists. But as neither can successfully find the trees to chop down / strap themselves to, so far the feud has only resulted in shouting matches and the odd egg throw in public.
