As Thanksgiving approaches each year, it’s also marks the season for turkey testicle festivals that take place throughout the USA and are especially popular in Illinois.
And why not – after all, turkey testicles are thought to be an aphrodisiac.
I’ve always wanted to go to the TURKEY TESTICLE FESTIVAL but just have never made it. What is it you ask? It’s a festival that has been going on in Huntley Illinois since 1978. They fry up about 1,200 pounds of testicles every year and the festival raised approximately $30,000 for local charities in 2007. You pay $10.00 at the door and that goes to charity. There are bikers to see, testicles to eat, beer to drink, music to listen and dance to and I’m sure it’s great people watching too!
It sounds like fun to me! Here’s all the details: http://www.parksidepubhuntley.com/
Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
