Humans love food, it's just in our nature. And when a person loves something, they want to celebrate it any way they can.
This often means that many of the largest, most exciting festivals and events held around the world are done so in the name of food. Such as the Spam festival held in Hawaii, or the BugFest in North Carolina (which, yes, is exactly what it sounds like).
The slideshow after the link collects some of the strangest of these events for your viewing pleasure.
