Laughfest officially kicks off at 7:30pm tonight at Rosa Parks Circle!  The festivities at Rosa Parks will include an attempt to break Guinness World Record for tossing rubber chickens.  Everyone is welcome, so you can stroll downtown and lob some rubber chickens around in attempt to beat the Guinness Record.  The previous record was 265 people tossing chickens and Laughfest organizers hope to draw 500 people to participate.

After the chicken flinging you can head down to one of 10 different bars and restaurants to get your laugh on.  Roving comedy troupes will mill around downtown between the 10 locations sharing jokes and good cheer.  The participating buisnesses are:

25 Kitchen + Bar, Bar Divani, The B.O.B., J. Gardella’s Tavern, Louis Benton, McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon, Mojo’s Dueling Piano Bar & Restaurant, Peppino’s Grille and Pizzeria Sports Lounge and Rockwells/Republic.

So get downtown tonight and kick off West Michigan's own Comedy Festival!
