2013 Tour de Fat
June 5th, 2013 [photography]
I still have to explain what Tour de Fat is. No, it is not fat people on tour. It’s New Belgium Brewing‘s celebration of beer and bikes, named after their Fat Tire ale. We had a beautiful and surprisingly hot day in Yards Park. Washington, DC’s bike community came out, many in goofy costumes, for the games and the bands. Oh, and the beer. The performance schedule promised the best for last, and indeed delivered, with a giant inflatable albino squid taking the stage, followed by an appearance by the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, who was promptly captured in between giant pieces of chocolate and a graham cracker.
