Chicken Dance Day -Postcard Friendship Friday #134

I know it is the 21st--a day after this celebration--but I just couldn't resist the fun.  September 20th is Chicken Dance Day in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This is a newer holiday which began in 1994, when the Crown Prince of Bavaria visited Cincinnati and participated in their Oktoberfest Zinzanniti celebration.  At that time celebrations included the world's largest chicken dance. With 40,000 people joining in the activity, the event was actually recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.  Can you imagine a crowd that size all doing the chicken dance?  Wow!  The dust cloud must have been incredible--or at least they shook the earth a bit.

*  DON'T FORGET:  When you submit a postcard, be sure to put a link back to this page.  You can copy and paste the PFF badge, which has the link embedded.  Thank you!

*  NOTE: You don't have to stick to the theme I choose each Friday. Just put up the postcards you love and tell us why you like them.

*  REMINDER: Comments and links which contain advertising and do not refer to any of the following; Postcard Friendship Friday, mailboxes, the Post office, postcards or the love of postcards, will be deleted.  Lately, I've had to delete quite a few comments which are just ads.

Great card. I love it. I can remember teaching my nieces this dance a great many years ago.
