You may have heard of the Big Pig Jig Festival but in Smithville Saturday was a day for the chickens. The 8th annual chicken pie festival brought people from Texas to Minnesota to Smithville.

Visitors could listen to music or buy crafts. But if you wanted the famous chicken pie you had to come early. The thousands of people went threw 28 large pans of chicken pie. "Yesterday this lady that live right around the corner had a knock on her door", says Jack Smith past Mayor of Smithville. "It was people going from Indiana to Florida wanted to know if they could buy some chicken pie . She said you know our festival isn't till tomorrow. The lady said well I thought you might have some made up today"
