According to sources, the initial planning stages for Ferrets in the City 2003 has begun. A kickoff meeting was held at Panera Bread, a trendy, hip establishment on Peters Road, to signify the trendy, hip nature of next year’s event. Attendees discussed plans over chocolate croissants and mochafrappuccino. Details are sketchy at this early stage, but word is the event will feature an anvil shoot, the ever-popular bouncy castle, fake tattoos for kids, real tatoos for adults, and a craft show. Local artists and taxidermists are already hard at work on their ferret creations.
