It's a chance for 4-H Club members to show off handmade costumes, and it's a chance for chickens to strut their stuff.
In the annual Poultry Pageant Costume Contest, held at the Bainbridge Island Farmers' Market on Saturday, June 16, members of the Bainbridge 4-H Club competed in three categories: Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Famous/Historical and Most Delicious.
Winning in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category was River Amaden, who sported a Harry Potter costume, while his chicken was dressed like a golden snitch.
Sterling Amaden's Michael Jackson costume won in the Famous/Historical category.
In a surprise twist, two goats masquerading as chickens in a hotdog costume won for Most Delicious.
Chocolate awards from Powell and Jones Fine Chocolates were given to the winners.
The event is always free to enter, and open to the public for participation and judging. Event organizers say it's a great way for the 4-H club members to practice showing their animals prior to summer fairs.
