If you live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC you can have fun at a town festival to celebrate one of South Carolina’s largest agribusinesses — poultry.
The South Carolina Poultry Festival is still going strong more than 30 years after it began. The festival takes place this week, Thursday, May 7th – Saturday, May 9th. Saturday’s lineup includes tons of fun stuff you love — carnival rides, music, volleyball tournament, parade, chicken cooking contest, a car show and much more. Not to mention all the fried food you can bear to put in your mouth —as well as a few extras, including a zip line, mechanical bull ride, street dances, fireworks and more.
But the piece de resistance is the No. 1 World’s Best Chicken Cooking Contest. Here are a few keys to cooking good chicken.
- Texture. It's got to be moist.
Best in Show will go to the best-dressed chicken. In this one category, you can totally bomb in all the other areas but still walk away with the top award.
TheSouth Carolina Poultry Festival is in downtown Batesburg-Leesville. For more information, visit scpoultryfestival.com
