This highly original holiday event originated in 1925 when a local drugstore owner threw live chickens from the rooftop on Christmas Eve. Prize tags were attached to the chickens' legs which could be redeemed for prizes, and the chickens were kept for Christmas dinner. In recent years, the tradition has been revived with gift cards attached to rubber chickens. Whether you participate in the catch or attend as a spectator, you'll enjoy music and hot chocolate. Come early to shop local merchants.
