Halloweenfest

Halloweenfest, Brevard, NC

Halloweenfest, Brevard, NC

Brevard, North Carolina, has several festivals throughout the year, but being the county seat of Transylvania County, the Halloweenfest is one of the most popular. Usually, we have a liberal scattering of vampires, but I didn’t see any this year. Maybe vampires are passé this year.

But there were plenty of cute, fun and scary costumes….

      So, I’m wondering where they came up with the name and I do a search on “Mike the headless chicken” and find an actual Wikipedia article about Mike, who was incompetently axed and survived a year and a half without his cerebral cortex (apparently, chickens do just fine with only a brain stem), and inspired an annual festival in Fruita, Colorado.

      You know, these rural traditions and festivals are disappearing as cities swallow up suburbs and suburbs swallow up farmland and it should be your priority, your duty, to record these things for posterity and your great-grandkids. But no. In May, the month in which they host this delightful event, you wrote a post about a pick-up basketball game. The Mike-the-headless-chicken festival even hosted a 5k race, so you could have had some fun during your visit (although it wasn’t clear from the Mike’s web site that this was for humans – maybe it was a headless chicken race?)

      (Actually, I really liked your basketball post, but, gosh! you could have done two posts that month!)

      • are you sure it was basketbawl?
        my wife and my son-in-law’s brother and his wife went to “mike” — they “collect” regional weird local fairs and the two out-of-towners (from the east coast) had a heckuva time!

          Maybe volleyball? I get all those games with inflated round balls mixed up . Was is soccer? I’m pretty sure it wasn’t football – that’s the one with the pointy ends, right?

      • oh, and our “timing department” of our local running club does the chip-timing and behind the scenes work and schlepping for the Mike 5k, — so i do go, in a sense …

          So then, you must know how they work it…. How do they make the chickens run in a straight line? I would think that a chicken-with-it’s-head-cut-off runs around randomly.

  4. How interesting. I have never seen Halloween. It is known here, but not so widely.
