18 Dec TamaracTalk: Festivus Pole Erected at Tamarac City Hall

A Festivus pole went up at the City of Tamarac beside a manger scene and a menorah on Tuesday – at least temporarily.  Less than 24 hours after the pole was erected by Chaz Stevens along with the Parks and Recreation department, someone had moved it next to Santa Claus  – nowhere near the religious display.   Full Story

Stevens has received worldwide attention for placing a Festivus pole in the Florida State Capital.  Last year, he gained notoriety last year after negotiating with elected officials and installing a Festivus pole made out of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans outside of Deerfield Beach’s main fire station, next to a manger scene. However, this year, the city has since stopped allowing any religious displays on city property.

Update from Michael Cernech, Tamarac City Manager:

Mr. Stevens,

I am away from the manger for the next few days and if the legends are true the elves misbehave beyond belief when this sort if thing occurs. My spies down in Bethlehem town tell me someone thought Jolly old St. Nic looked awfully funny clutching those PBR cans! However, this is wrong on a number of levels and the Festivus pole shall be returned to its rightful place or wherever you spotted it the other day! The poles’ safety is assured, but as an aside I must confide in you that one of the 3 Kings got lippy with some Tamarac Yutes yesterday and my spies tell me we are down to 2 Kings.

I’ll have to get back to you on which of our youth sports groups needs the most support.
