The Cheyenne Ice and Events Center's annual Chicken Curling Tournament will make its glorious return this spring after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year's event will take place on Saturday, March 26.

Teams of up to four people will compete in a double-elimination format using donated frozen chickens, instead of stones, to see who is the best at sliding their birds across the ice and into the center of a circular target.
