Cutest Little Chick Contest
Almost since the beginning, we've been hosting the Cutest Little Chick Contest each year as a part of the Petaluma Butter and Egg Day Parade. What started out as a fun way to give back to the community, has turned into a proud tradition.
Each year parents have the opportunity to dress their infant to five-year-old child up in some sort of chicken themed costume that goes along with the theme of that year’s parade. They are then evaluated by a panel of three judges, who evaluate each contestant based on originality, detail and completeness, and the poultry theme. The grand prize is 4 tickets to a Discovery Kingdom and $50, while second and third place each receive money. After the conclusion of the contest, all of the contestants and their parents are welcome to ride on the float and to be a part of the parade. The contest is always fun and full of creativity, so make sure that you come by the parade early this year to see us out on Kentucky St. at 10:30 AM to see all of the cutest little chicks in town.
If you are interested in signing up your child to participate, you must register by the Wednesday before the date of the parade.
