Perhaps the organizers of the Hawthorne Hog Fest (see previous post below) could take a look at the City of Oviedo and the Kiwanis Charity Chicken Race. The inaugural event, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Oviedo-Winter Springs Foundation, takes place today in Oviedo. This unique fundraiser celebrates, rather than torments, animals.
During the event, children will race holding hand-decorated paper roosters, hens and chicks. The race is preceded by a Grand Chicken Parade during which the decorators can show off their artistic talents. The event also includes the sale of chicken memorabilia, and a chicken toss– with rubber chickens!
We hope the Chicken Race is a big success!
