The Taste of Hobbiton
The Taste of Hobbiton is an instance somewhere in the The Shire.
Somewhere in The Shire many Hobbits have gathered for a special event of the festival, a combination race and eating contest. This public instance playground was introduced 2012 and NPCs were relocated from The Hill to this location, which looks more like somewhere in the White Downs of the Delving Fields, maybe near Little Delving.
The race has four contestants. Choose one with the Race-master, Bando Brandybuck. If your chosen contestant is first to the finish line, you win six Summer Festival Tokens which you claim from Bando Brandybuck, but if you lose you may collect one or two tokens from the Consolation Present standing nearby. He also barters tokens for many items related to the current summer festival. Caution: claim your prize quickly....if you delay and the contestants reappear for the next race, you forfeit any prize.
