For 28 years, the town has been the site of the annual Wayne Chicken Show, which starts Friday (July 7).
The funky event boasts a chicken parade, a dancing chicken mascot and tons of chicken-themed games designed to get you out of your shell.
This years eggcellent event will include the Best Chicken Legs contest, where contestants stand behind a curtain and have their drumsticks judged by the audience and the Hard-boiled Egg Eating Contest, whose reigning champion devoured 13 eggs last year.
But the hit of the event is the National Cluck- Off.
Thats where the best cluckers in the house who often arrive dressed up and bearing props battle it out for the honor of being the funkiest chicken.
Competition is a part of the festivities, but no one gets their feathers ruffled because, as Irene Fletcher explains, Everyone gets prizes in our games.
Luckily, the event only takes place on a Friday and Saturday, which means the visitors will have July 9 to re-coop-erate.
