The Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition

Posted by Bob Alpi On December 10, 2014 ADD COMMENTS

After an eight-teen year hiatus, The Great Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition is returning to Pioneer Courthouse Square this Friday night. Starting at 6pm, rain or shine, you will find carolers at select corners along SW Yamhill & Morrison Streets. These groups will be listened to by roaming judges and the best of them will be invited on stage for a “carol-off.”

As one might imagine the opportunity for fame and glory, not to mention a cashy money first prize, has captured the attention of Portland’s Premiere Privateers. Thus, the PDXYAR crew will be garbing up to enter the fray.

Now this is where you come in. This is audience participation event and we need you to come out and cheer us on.

Seriously, do you want some stuffy team singing traditional carols to win? Worse yet, what if there is an evil cabal of hipsters conspiring to ensnare the minds of the judges with a dark sorceries, win the competition and ruin Christmas for all time!

This is PDX, it is far more appropriate to have a bunch of pirates singing ditties such as “God Rest Ye Merry Privateers,” “Deck the Ships” and of course the perennial favorite “Cannon Balls” to walk away with the trophy.

So, fill your favorite flask with Christmas Cheer and come out to lend us your acclaim this Friday night!
