The town of Fruita is packed with people from all over the world and everyone is there for one reason. That reason is Mike the Headless Chicken and if you're from Fruita or anywhere near, chances are you have heard all about him.
Back in 1945, when Mike was alive, he became quite the celebrity appearing in "Life Magazine" and traveling to carnivals and festivals.
Most people say, Mike was simply a miracle and even though his life and death was strange most people still believe the story of the chicken who didn't die when his head was cut off.
The fun continues throughout the entire weekend. For a list of all events go to miketheheadlesschicken.org
