    I know I am. Whole family is going tomorrow. Wooo!
    I can't wait! This year it is suppose to be bigger. I heard they're selling chickens this year. I hope I can find some really good lines. Maybe I'll run into some of you fellow BYC'ers there!

    I've thought about going but it always seems to rain that weekend.

    Selling chickens this year, sigh, I may just have to give in and talk the hubby into going. Is it Saturday and Sunday or just Saturday?

    Quote:Both. Tomorrow is the big day. it is going on until ten at night tomorrow, from what i hear. We only have a 20% chance of rain so that's good. It's a shame it is going on at the same time the Blooming festival at St. Bernards though [​IMG].

    They have several bangs, chicken shows, chicken, egg, and other food eating contests, chicken calling contests, egg drop for engineers contests, an art show, vendor's booths. I'm excited. Since it's only it's fourth year it will still be pretty small I bet, but I hope this thing catches on. Wouldn't it be great if the festival becomes HUGE? Imagine, acres of CHICKENS, and chicken art, and chicken products and... and....
