Huron Turkey Races
2017 Turkey Races will be held May 18 in Downtown Huron
Just when you think you have seen it all... the annual Huron Turkey Races takes place every spring in downtown Huron! The event draws huge crowds eager to watch teams of two try to encourage their "turkey" team cross the finish line first for a chance to win a $1,000 nest egg. Sponsorships are available for purchase by local businesses and individuals.
Activities include skills games, a turkey pot pie eating contest, foot darts, and more! Turkey legs and fowl balls will also 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 Special Olympics, Tennis, Everyone!, Huron Public Schools for athletic equipment, Huron Hockey Association for the ice rink, Huron Baseball Association, downtown beautification efforts and more.
The event is free to the public and fun for the entire family.
