The year 2000 saw an invasion of hundreds of decorated moose sculptures all over the city. The sculpture show of moose was inspired by Chicago’s “Cows on Parade”. Other cities also got in on the fun, such as Seattle (with its “Pigs on Parade”) and Cincinatti (the “Big Pig Gig”).
Although all started out with antlers, they proved to be popular among souvenir seekers, and after a few weeks, most antlers went missing. When the city offered a reward for the return of the antlers, that only made the problem worse!
