The 2012 North American Wife Carrying Championships are coming to Maine this Saturday, October 6th at Sunday River. This weekend the Sunday River Fall Festival takes place and for over 10 years they have been hosting the wife carrying championships. Last year’s winners were Rocco Andreozzi from Bethel, Maine and Kim Wasco of Farmington, Maine. Wife Carrying teams consist of male and female competitors; however, they do not have to be married. Teams from the United States and Canada come to compete in front of thousands of spectators and will receive international media attention if they win.
