Henoween & Wayne Chicken Show

This lighthearted celebration of chickens begins on a Friday evening dubbed "Henoween" (All Hens E'en) with entertainment and games in downtown Wayne. The next morning an hour-long parade ends in Bressler Park, where the National Cluck-Off and other competitions are held, including a raw egg catch, hard-boiled egg eating contest, and chicken flying contest. The officiating fully feathered Chicken makes appearances in the streets, local businesses, and on television. The 20th festival will be held in the year 2000.
