Iowa Chicken Run

503 East Highway 90
Iowa, LA 70647

In 1978, Willie Bushnell, his son Willis Bushnell, Griffin Victorian, Rogers Bellard, Boo-Zoo Chavis and their families started the Iowa run to keep their heritage and cultural traditions alive for their children and future generations to come. When Mr. Bushnell passed away his youngest daughter Helen Bushnell Morris and his oldest grandsons and granddaughters continued the tradition until 2009. The last several years, the eldest grandsons, Rodney Louis Victorian, Kimmy Bellard and their families have preserved the event.
