Delta to drop 6-foot chicken at midnight


DELTA, Ohio -- The village of Delta, in Fulton County, will drop a 6-foot costumed, fake chicken at midnight from a fire truck ladder on Wood Street on the west side of Delta Memorial Hall. The New Year’s Eve celebration is a new event for the village of roughly 3,000 and serves as the kickoff to a year’s worth of sesquicentennial celebrations.

The village was incorporated in 1863 and plans a series of events throughout 2013 to mark the anniversary. It chose to celebrate the new year with a chicken drop in honor of the village’s biggest event -- the annual Delta Chicken Festival.

Today’s family friendly activities begin at 9 p.m. with refreshments, a disc jockey providing music, and children’s activities.
