12th Annual Mike the Headless Chicken Festival: Mike on a Bike
Every spring thousands of people flock to downtown Fruita to celebrate the life of a worldfamous headless chicken named Mike. This year marks the 12th annual event, which takes place May 18 and 19 at the Fruita Civic Center Pavilion.
The theme for 2012 is “Mike on a Bike,” and activities and contests have been planned to fit the theme. These include a Headless Poker Ride, Dirt Jumps Competition and Bike Rodeo. Another new addition to this year’s festival is a disc golf competition at the Fruit Disc Golf course. Along with these events, families will also enjoy live music, eating contests, food and craft vendors, and plenty of free activities.
A full schedule and registration for each event is available at www.miketheheadlesschicken.org. For more information, please call the City of Fruita at 970-858-0360.
