Illinois has given approval to a request by a Florida man to place a Festivus pole inside the Illinois State Capitol.
Festivus is the made up counter celebration to the holiday season first introduced to the world by Seinfeld.
Chaz Stevens told News 4 his goal is to have the pole at any public place where a nativity scene is displayed. Stevens’ application to have the pole displayed in the middle of the capitol was recently approved by the Secretary of State. The pole is six-feet tall and pays tribute to gay pride. It also topped with a disco ball.
