Neighbors In Nebraska Are Having A Blow Up Turkey War
Across the street, the Vacha family put up just one turkey at around the same time. But the next year, thanks to some clearance sales, they suddenly had four on their lawn. And that’s how we ended up with a turkey war in Omaha.
The competition usually starts November 1, but this year, the Friskopps fired the first salvo by putting out their first turkey at 10:01 p.m. on Halloween. The Vachas were outside with the Friskopps when Aron suddenly disappeared and the turkey appeared.
As of Monday, the Friskopps had 20 turkeys in their front yard and Vacha had 20. But those numbers likely will keep growing until it’s time to feast on the real thing.
Both families have admitted that they have others in reserve. They also admitted that you would be hard-pressed to find any inflatable turkeys in Omaha right now.
Like most wars, this one isn’t cheap. The 6-foot inflatables can cost as much as $100. The smaller ones go for around $25.
Both families say the best is yet to come.
