Beyond serious discussions about high frequency trading and tax-dodging mergers, the Berkshire Hathaway shareholders' gathering also is a weekend of fun for investors and Warren Buffett fans alike.
Sometimes called "Woodstock for Capitalists," the event this year drew about 38,000 people to Berkshire's hometown in Omaha, Nebraska. There's arguably no other investor gathering quite like the annual Berkshire confab.
The event is part-investor meeting, part-Omaha road trip, and part-celebrity sightings—finance celebrities, that is. There was also a 5K road race this year.
