  The fish mongers
by Venturingnow

Of course, as many of us already know, the Pike Place Market is famous for its fish throwers. Unfortunately the event never happened while I was there, but they did throw a few crabs around. Plus, the workers at the fish market would try to scare little kids with this huge fish they had rigged up to a string, they'd make it move like a puppet and the kids would go running!

Directions: Just go to the crowd in the market and you shall find the fish throwers.
