Trending: Banana Derby

Central PA Live

Have you ever seen a monkey riding a dog?

The “Banana Derby” is one of the most popular attractions this year at the Galveston County Fair and Rodeo.

Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like.

A monkey will dress up like a jockey and jump on top of a dog, together. They race around a small track, often getting distracted along the way.

Organizers say it all started when their pet monkey, Gilligan, started riding the family dog.

Now, Gilligan travels around the country, showing off his new skill.
