Let's start at Sequoyah Place. They're having a big sale to celebrate the upcoming Fancy Feast Daze... a weeklong festival of canned meat by-product blisss!
During Fancy Feast Daze, most stores stay open late and take at least 25% off prices. Now, that's a bargain!
Several retailers are having themed specials to go with this event. Amongst the stores cashing in on the hype and increased pedestrian traffic are these Schulminion favorites:
Truly, Sequoyah Place has something for everyone. That's why it is known as the "heart of great shopping."
You might wonder who would be coming into town for Fancy Feast Daze. Well, there's thousands streaming in from Tenne, Wirdleonia and beyond. Governor Cawale sailed in from Gran Maru to be the Grand Marshal of the parade and several drill teams from Glenwood Military Academy and the Air Force Academy marched behind her in their flashy dress uniforms.
Not just thousands of visitors, but also thousands of locals lined the streets for the parade, enjoying the marchers, festive floats and the beads and treats thrown to the crowd by float operators. Let's see some of the Tellicoans who enjoyed this grand spectacle.
No lonely hearts club band for Sgt. Pepper when the parade passes right by his house.
Sirron Kcuhc lives right across the street from Pounce Elementary School. He got a great view of the parade and the kids got free time outside to watch as well. Concessionaires sold Friskies Party Mix and the latest sinfully good carnival snack food - deep fried sardines and tuna. Every kitty's dream!
I. M .Vhozzi has the best of all worlds - a great home across from the Tellico Plaza shopping center and a fabulous view of the parade from his balcony.
D. C. Metro can get a great view from his balcony. Of course, he'll come down to the street where he can catch beads and treats as they are tossed to the crowd.
The parade ends at Tellico Cathedral. This distinctive structure dominates the skyline and is destined to appear on Tellico's coinage, which is currently being designed by mint officials. Here, an all-weekend street festival is in full swing.
The plaza between the cathedral and the baptistery hosts quite a few vendors and street performers. The plaza behind the cathedral does the same, and spills out onto the waterfront. One of the highlights of the day is the paper airplane throwing contest. Inspired by the one in Atkiniros, this one offers a 100 schulmoneta cash prize to the winner. This year, the prize was won by Claude Couch of Tellico.
Claude Couch's airplane sailed out of the campanile and over the octagonal marble baptistery, traveling a record 1,163 tails before landing near the front of Sequoyah Place.
The vast parade has a meandering and circuitous route, nearly circumnavigating the city from its origin at City Hall. If you want to follow this procession, you'd better have your walking shoes on.
City Hall and the nearby Etowah College campus serve as the starting point of the procession, which travels clockwise nearly 360 degrees before ending at the cathedral.
The parade does not pass by this Chicken King, which is just north of the cathedral. That's OK, because plenty of food vendors line the route, offering everything from chicken to burgers to Fancy Feast to catnip tea smoothies.
It should be clear by now that Tellico does indeed have something for everyone.
