Herkys will soon come off parade, go up for auction

Posted: Updated:
CORALVILLE (KWWL) - If you haven't made it around to all the Herky on Parade statues yet, time is running out.

The last day to see the statues on parade is Monday.

The statues of the Hawkeye mascot have been out at various locations around Iowa City and Coralville all summer long.

After that, all 84 statues will be moved to the final Herky on Parade Final Farewell at FRY Fest. The statues will be on display at the World's Largest Hawkeye Tradeshow on Aug. 29.

Fifteen Herkys will be available for silent bidding at the tradeshow. Others will be available at a live auction on Sept. 12.

Money raised will go to the United Way of Johnson and Washington Counties.
