So what's all the Flagstaff Hullabaloo?

The Flagstaff Hullabaloo is a celebration of bikes, beer, weirdness of all manner . . . . We lost Tour de Fat in 2007 so we gotta have something!

I went down this past Saturday to see what it was all about.


Very large puppets that scare me.


A rest station when drinking beer becomes just too exhausting.  Note the bike with a canopy to shield the rider from scorching high mountain UV rays.

Dr. Seuss character and a young lady who wants to be a cat; both with bikes.


Channeling the B-52's.  I love the B-52's.


Lot's of music and Samba drummers, much dancing . . . .




I didn't dress up.  Despite a BFA from UGA when it comes to putting together a costume I'm a lost cause and a Halloween no-show.  I did buy a chicken BBQ sandwich and slaw from Big-Foot BBQ.  No picture but I promice you, it was delicious.   All proceeds benefitted Flagstaff Biking Organization.

Great photos! I have to admit that I don't do costumes either - not even on Halloween :) I love seeing others dress up, and am amazed at their creativity, but I can never come up with anything. We're no longer on anyone's Halloween party list for that reason - haha!

Traci, every Halloween I struggle with the question of whether or not I want to be invited to a Halloween Party for this very reason. Evidently, people have figured it out - I have no imagination. I might have an idea for the next Tweed ride so, we'll see.
