For many people, tomorrow is a big day. It is King Turkey Day, and if you’re not in the 10K or 5K competitions, you may be in the parade, or maybe you just like to watch 10 normally serious and prominent community members attempting to get a bird with a brain the size of a walnut to run in a straight line.
The turkey race is definitely my favorite part of King Turkey Day and I recommend it to anyone who happens to be in the area tomorrow. If you’re not, though, the Daily Globe will be broadcasting the race live online, provided all goes well and our connection holds up.
The race begins at 1:30 p.m. and the Globe will have three different camera people there.
There’s a good reason for this. One of the cameras is for the live feed, and that camera person will be doing their best to get every single minute of the race, including both turkeys and both race teams.
The other two cameras will each focus on just one of the birds, which will enable me to edit the footage together into a single split-screen video of the turkey race, just like I did last year.
I strongly recommend going to the actual race itself, but if you can’t, make sure to turn up at the Globe’s site at 1:30 p.m.
If you want to see the race again later, give me an hour or two afterward to edit the footage and check it out at www.dglobe.com.
