It’s early February – time for Edison’s Annual Bird Festival in the one and only village of Edison, Washington.
Where else in the world is there a festival which rollerbladers dressed as chickens racing down the main drag? It’s a short two and a half block long race and what a blast.
After the race, it’s time for the “Be the Chicken!” Chicken Parade. Many people bring their chickens and walk them, carry them, pull them in carts through town.
It was cold, clear day, perfect weather for a winter festival. If you missed it this year, make plans now to be in Edison next February.
