Furries, Fieris and fairs. That’s what Flavortown is all about, baby!
In maybe the greatest thing that’s ever happened to the Humboldt County Fair, Ferndale-raised celebrity chef Guy Fieri posed for photos with a group of his furry fans yesterday.
Reader Sammantha Melton told the LoCO that Fieri was approached by the furries — a large subculture of people who express themselves by wearing fuzzy animal costumes — near the racetrack where he was participating in the fair’s annual “Guy’s BBQ Competition.”
“He seemed super-stoked to take a group picture with them,” she said. “Everyone was loving the scene.”
