3.)Most raggies have a brood of offspring who they take to the annual Winsted Fireman's Carnival and parade down Main St.
4.)Most raggies, from time to time, enjoy going to Holland Beach, wearing nothing more than a wife-beater (white tank-top)and/or dirty jean cut-offs.

6.)Many bike-riding raggies can be seen in Winsted typically between the hours of 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. (and at all parades and town events)
