I'm told that Fairmont, Minnesota (down near the Iowa border) is holding a Fruitcake Launching Event, in which fruitcakes are shot out of catapults and other machines. There are other events as well, such as a fruitcake poetry contest, and decorating contest with prizes for ugliest and most beautiful cakes. If you don't have fruitcake or a catapult, there are some available to rent.
