"For those who haven’t experienced Tour de Fat, it is a thrilling rite of passage that includes an unparalleled costumed bicycle parade, New Belgium beer, eccentric entertainment, local food, unusual bike contests and much more. The free event, which raises money for local nonprofits through beer and merchandise purchases, will soon exceed the $2 million mark for total funds raised."
I stole the above statement from the New Belgium website. If you have never experienced Tour de Fat you are really missing out! It's the most unique and fun parade. People's creativity really comes out and every participant is out to have a good time...young, old, humans and furry friends! We saw everything from alligators to zebras, superheros to santa and everything in between!
Enjoy these photos! I sure enjoyed taking them.
