Only in my city
« on: July 01, 2009, 07:51:37 PM »

Ladies and Gentlemen I humbly submit proof that my entire city is insane.  These are pictures of the annual "cattle drive" down one of the busiest intersections in Northern Nevada.  I believe that part of the cattle drive was actually ON Highway 395 this year.  You can see the overpass in some of the pictures. See the one with the 7-11 sign?  Yeah, that's just a few blocks from where I live, it is ALWAYS busy there. Sigh.  Only in my city.

I'm just curious.  What bizarre traditions are observed in your towns and cities?  Are you a fan?  

I enjoy a lot of of our annual events...however the cattle drive and following Rodeo are not on my list of favorites.

ours was in may, too. there's a parade down the main street every year, and last year my brother's venture crew took first place for their float.

This event seems very unnecessary.

In my town we have a festivle every 2 or so months. It is sad and full of fail. Not like the Garlic Festival in Gilroy just south of us. Even if Gilroy is a wasteland, at least they can be proud of there Garlic...

Cow Bingo. ???

...

And they drive cattle here too.

And there is a Historical event where people dress up in cowboy attire and shoot people. I like that one.You can take old fashion pictures and ride in carriages.
There is also a Dandelion days faire, and a frog jump, and a duck derby....and an annual hot august nights thing...Classic Cars showcase....and uhm...I think the Celtic fest already happened.  During Xmas you get to walk the mainstreet and the shops give you cookies and cider. I always hang at the Celtic Knot shop cuz the Irish give me whiskey!!! I bring my own shot glass XD Or if I have cider I share and we get drunk. o.o;; Happy Holidays! XD
But yeah that is what I know happens, probably more stuff but I haven't looked.

I think Morgan Hill does the Mushroom Festival. I always wanted to go to those kinds of events, parade and all. The last parade I went to I ended up being in it. It was in San Francisco, I was in the Marching Unit from NJROTC. It was a long walk and we had to these routines. But it was fun.I was 16 I think  :P

OMG!!  How did I MISS this one?  It's a SuperHero Pub Crawl.  A whole bunch of locals got dressed up as SuperHeroes and did a pub crawl thru downtown Reno.  It's like cosplay...with booze recommended!!!  I must do this one next year!  (Pictures stolen from Facebook...seriously look up Reno Nevada on Facebook and look thru the superhero pubcrawl album...it's hilarious and you boys will really like some of the female type superheroes...just saying).

No.... :( I just know they're an old west re-enactment(sp?) group. They travel all through Jackson, Sutter Creek, Dry Town, Fiddle Town and several other small historical towns. They also show up in Angels' Camp for the Old West/Pioneer days or whatever it's called.

I'll look it up though.


I rofl'd at the "Super Glue" hero....gotta go to Reno. XD~! My Artist friend has a tattoo studio in Reno. X3

We're also proud of the facts that we earn a big chunk of money, despite hosting a festival during the hottest part of the year.  Other than that, we rarely smell garlic in the air.

There's also a artichoke festival in Castroville; I love fried artichoke hearts :)

My town... has no downtown.  That's how pathetic is.  And last year's "renovations" consisted of them demolishing the movie theatres and bowling alley with no intention of putting them back.

fail.

Heaven help us if you should find videos of our "How Berkeley Can You Be" parade on 'tube or anywhere.  The year my sister marched the parade included Star Wars cosplayers and buck-naked peeps.    :o
