I (Heart) Skunks

This is one of the most unusual festivals we've ever heard about! Azar Attura of Arlington, VA, created and sold these buttons for SkunkFes, an annual festival where "Skunks Are Royalty" in Ohio. At the festival, people who legally own skunks as pets (descented!) bring them out for a day of fun, contests and general showing-off. There is a Skunk Race (one skunk at a time), a Skunk Dress-Up Contest, and awards for skunks (King, Queen, Princess, etc.)- along with food, vendors and festivities. "I sold out of buttons the first year. The next year, I made more and demand was brisk and so were the sales!" said Azar.
