Huron Turkey Races

Just when you think you have seen it all... the annual Huron Turkey Races takes place every spring in downtown Huron!  Wondering what it's like, watch the video here!

The event draws huge crowds eager to watch teams of two try to encourage their turkey feathered friend to cross the finish line first for a chance to win a $1,000 nest egg. Race turkeys are available for purchase by local businesses and individuals.

Activities this year include a Dizzy Bat Race, Wiffle Ball Throw Contest, Catcher's Race, Candy Scramble, Parade of Champs and Spirit Award. Turkey Legs and Fowl Balls will be available to test your palate.

Event proceeds go towards a community or civic cause identified prior to the event. Previous recipients of the proceeds include Huron Public Schools for athletic equipment and downtown beautification efforts.

The event is free to the public and fun for the entire family.
