For the 45th Annual Cuero Turkeyfest, the Board of Directors have decided to honor a truely amazing turkey, Chit Chat. Chit Chat has been "Ruby Begonia" off the racetrack for the past nine years, appearing at dozens of parades and public appreances promoting Turkeyfest and the Community of Cuero. Along with Chit Chat, we honor the family that raises our racing turkeys, the Thamm family: Cory, Wendy, and children, Dalton, Lara, Travis, and Cody.
The Turkeyfest Parade rolls through downtown Cuero on Saturday morning. For a parade entry form, contact the Cuero Chamber of Commerce at 361-275-2112.
