Hypnotizing chickens at the fair

Posted: Updated:
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. -

It's a Channel 3 tradition! Every summer the team from The :30 packs up for the Champlain Valley Fair.

All the food and prizes we've come to love are back, but just when you think you've seen it all, think again. 

This year there's a live demonstration to show folks how to hypnotize their feathered friends. Organizers say it helps folks clip the birds' without the animals injured. It's also kids day and that had youngsters showing off their prized animals. Cooking demonstrations were also in the mix and all the rides and attractions people enjoy. We asked 8-year-old Sawyer Leggett for help interviewing his grandmother about what she loves best. 

"Just watching you kids ride on the rides, it was so much fun and the big smiles on your faces, it was hysterical," said Mabel Young, Sawyer's grandmother. 

"I won a prize and went on some fun rides, we had a fun day," said Sawyer Leggett.

All this week Eva and Keith McGilvery will be going one-on-one in a series of spirited competitions. 

Monday a Keith went for a two for three racing down the giant slide and there four days of competition to go and it would be foolish to count Eva out! 

Also on tap for this week are water gun races and we'll share our ice cream scooping challenge who could build the highest cone in 30 seconds.
