Eighth Annual Denver Catfish Festival DATE CHANGE

17 May

We've sent Festival Representatives to media outlets all over the country to inform Catfish Enthusiasts of the date change.

Greetings, Fellow Catfish Enthusiasts,

Like oil over propane, the planning stages of the Eighth Annual Denver Catfish Festival planning are heating up!

After consulting with The Denver Catfish Festival Chief Astrologer, we’ve come to the conclusion that August 7th, 2010 will be the most favorable date for the Eighth Annual Denver Catfish Festival. While July 24th originally looked like a good date, the stars have spoken otherwise.

Let’s examine the facts:

**The crossing of Jupiter and Uranus with Aries on this date, and the flow of energy from said union, lends itself to a more lively reaction of cornmeal and cooking oil. It’s also important on this date to stay away from stressful situations and judgemental people. Make this a “you” day. Treat yourself to a morning at the spa followed by fried catfish, hush puppies, cold beer, Haiku, yard games, and witty repartee at the Eighth Annual Denver Catfish Festival.

**This date is the eve of the Venus conjunction with Saturn. Any errands, duties, or responsibilities should be postponed for at least 24 hours before and after this event; the only action permissible, according to cosmic law, is consumption of catfish, beer, hushpuppies, beer, and catfish. And hushpuppies.

**Pisces will be in the Fourth Quadrant of the Southern Sphere on August 7th. Traces of the Cornmeal Nebula will be sprinkled throughout Pisces for the first full weekend of the month, creating excellent viewing opportunities during Catfish Festival After Dark.

The galaxy has spoken, and it speaks Catfish.

Like the tender flesh of the creature we honor, we’ve been a bit light and flakey (but not delicious) regarding the date of the Eighth Annual Denver Catfish Festival, and we are mildy apologetic.

Now that we’ve settled that issue, it’s time for you, Catfish Enthusiasts, to submit your logo ideas as well as your Catfish-inspired Haikus! Like the dogs of Pavlov, we drool uncontrollably in anticipation of your submissions.

Sincerely, Joe T.,
