Perry kicks off ‘Who Saw Bob?’ contest

The city of Perry has launched a “Who Saw Bob?” contest in anticipation of the city’s New Year’s Eve Buzzard Drop.

A miniature model of a city water tower and buzzard replica will be placed on the grounds of the old courthouse, near the Confederate memorial statue. Bob the Buzzard will pop out of the mini water tower at random dates and times.

Those who see the buzzard can fill out a form noting the date and time to be entered in a drawing to win $100. The contest ends Dec. 31.

The Buzzard Drop New Year’s Eve event will feature two bands, Jettison Blue at 8 p.m. and the Has Beens at 9 p.m.

There will be a Buzzard Boogie dance contest, which has a $100 prize for the winner.
