Spring Festival Games

During the Spring Festival in the Shire, hobbits compete in a game called the Bullroarer's Challenge in which they drink a large amount of Bullroarer's Brew, toast to Bullroarer's health, and then try to run across fences set up between two stages without falling off the fence. Some hobbits practice all year long for this game which derives from Bandobras running along the tops of fences of the Great Smials to keep in shape and hone his skills.

The two stages are located just outside Brockenborings' eastern border. Visit Sigismond North-took for further direction.



Lore

"The day after the battle Frodo rode to Michel Delving and released the prisoners from the Lockholes. One of the first that they found was poor Fredegar Bolger, Fatty no longer. He had been taken when the ruffians smoked out a band of rebels that he led from their hidings up in the Brockenbores by the hills of Scary." — The Returns of the King, by Tolkien
