LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Chicken and Egg Festival is no more, landing another blow to Lawrence County.

Organizers announced that they can no longer handle putting on the event. The festival attracted more than 20,000 people in each of the last few years.

The Lawrence County Arts Council said they simply can't deal with coordinating and planning an event that big, and they've been unable to find another group who can.

The festival mixed music, art, cars and even eating contests into a weekend party every April since 2005.
