Be sure to mark your calendars! ๐Ÿ˜€ In celebration of Cow Appreciation Day on July 12th, Chick-fil-A will award a FREE combo meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) to any customer who comes to one of the chain’s 1,600+ restaurants fully dressed from head to hoof as a cow. Also, Chick-fil-A will award a FREE entree to customers partially dressed in cow attire, such as a cow-spotted scarf, purse, hat or other accessory. Decision of what qualifies as fully-dressed versus partially-dressed is at the discretion of the restaurant Operator.

Need some inspiration for a cow costume? Check out these ideas from Chick-fil-A…

* Start with items that you already have at home – cow- printed accessories stashed in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes, pajamas – just abut any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you’re covered head to toe!

* Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black contact paper. If contact paper is not easily accessible, you can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a magic marker.

* Go to your local paint or hardware store and get a white painter’s hat and overalls. And then decorate yourself with spots made out of contact or construction paper.

    You could also start with black and loosely sew printer paper (free reams at Staples and other places!!) spots.

    Love Chick-fil-a! Ours is constantly helping the local community and giving away free food! Last year my son was in a black tee with white felt circles pinned on. I only expected a free entree, since I felt that he was partially dressed as a cow. The manager insisted that we were dressed up enough for the whole meal. I thought that outstanding, since I would have been thrilled with just the entree!

    Looking forward to appreciation day! Bought some kids costumes last year for the kids to wear! Thanks for reminder!

    My 9 year old son and I have been going for quite a few years. My husband (and the rest of my family, for that matter) think we are crazy to dress up like cows, just to get a free lunch. But, it is great entertainment for us. Each year, we add a little something to our handmade costumes to make them look a little bit better than the previous year. Last year was the first year we missed, because we were away on vacation. We’ll be there this year!

    We do this every year and LOVE it!!! I think this year the kids and I are going with friends for lunch and them making daddy dress up when he gets home and going again for dinner! LOVE CFA!!!

    The link for the costume kit doesn’t work. Are they no longer offering the kit for us to use to dress up? That is what I’ve done for the past 3 years. ๐Ÿ™
