GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - There were a lot of laughs - but not enough chickens.
Hundreds of people threw a rubber chicken Thursday outside city hall in Grand Rapids, but organizers didn’t get enough to set a record.
The event was part of Gilda’s LaughFest, a 10-day festival of comedy to raise money for families dealing with cancer. It’s named for late comedian Gilda Radner.
Organizers say 738 rubber chickens were thrown in a huge ring, short of the 999 tossed at a church in Burlington, Ontario, Canada in 2011. Grand Rapids had the record for a few months that year when 925 people threw rubber chickens.
Wendy Wigger, president of Gilda’s LaughFest, says: “We always have serious fun.”
