A real life Mario Kart event is coming to St. Louis this fall, and secretly I hope I can dress up like Princess Peach.

If you ever wanted to drive like the characters in Mario Kart, here's your chance. A company called Mushroom Rally, which travels all over to make people, like myself, feel like they are driving in a real-life Mario Kart race.

The company will be making a stop in St. Louis this fall (October 12), and the cool part you get to choose your costume (maybe I should dress up as Yoshi, he's my favorite too). Costumes will be provided. You are actually competing for a prize to win a trip to Las Vegas to race in the National Championship.
