Bikers Expected To Gobble Down Turkey Testicles At Festival

BYRON, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Here’s something that you probably wouldn’t think gets bikers’ motors running: turkey testicles.

That’s the word from Bill Cook, an organizer of 27th annual Turkey Testicle Festival in Byron, Illinois, taking place this Friday (Oct. 7) and Saturday (Oct. 8).

Cook says he doesn’t have any idea why, but estimates out of the 5,000 people that will attend, about half of the patrons will be bikers.

That’s why on Friday there will be a special fundraiser to raise money for organizations that fight for bikers’ rights.

At this year’s turkey testicle fest, Cook says about 400 pounds of turkey testicles will be gobbled down – that’s about 75,000 beer-battered and deep-fried testicles in all.

That’s a lot more cajones than the first festival where only about 25 pounds of turkey fries were eaten.
