San Diego Chicken Named Bay Balloon Parade Grand Marshal
12-26-2006 5:52 AM

(San Diego, CA) -- The Holiday Bowl Committee, sponsor of the "Big Bay Balloon Parade" Thursday, has announced that the famous San Diego Chicken will serve as grand marshal for the 16th annual event.

Ted Giannoulas, then a student at San Diego State University, created the San Diego Chicken character 32 years ago as a stunt for a local radio station. He's been performing at San Diego Padres games and a host of other events ever since.

The parade gets under way at 10 o'clock Thursday morning on Pacific Coast Highway, starting at Cedar Street and heading south to Broadway. This year's parade theme is "It's a Wacky World." Tens of thousands of spectators are expected to turn out for the parade which bills itself as the largest inflatable figure parade in the country. This year's parade will feature 32 giant balloons including several Sesame Street characters such as "Bert and Ernie" and "Miss Piggy," and "Clifford the Big Red Dog."

The 90-minute parade will be broadcast on Channel 4 San Diego and an hour-long edited version will be re-aired on Friday at 9:00 a.m. on the USA Network.

The 29th annual Holiday Bowl game Friday afternoon features the University of California Golden Bears playing the Texas A&M University Aggies. The game gets under way at 5:00 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

Actually, the Famous Chicken is furry ... He's kinda like a giant Muppet© ... But he is incredibly cool. Mom has told us lots about him from when she was a kid and got to be a 7-Up Junior Padre. If you get a chance to watch the parade on ESPN or USA, you'll really like it. There is a shopping cart drill-team an' all sorts of "Wacky" stuff.
