2013 edition of Wild Rumpus is RAWR ~ Tribute to The Sun. The vision of The Wild Rumpus is to provide an organized avenue for the massive array of Athens creativity that manifests with such awesome power every Halloween. In the style and spirit of events like Burning Man or The Oregon Country Fair, The Wild Rumpus can serve as a safe and highly visible outlet for these creativities. Halloween is Athens' Mardi Gras. For those who have never experienced it, it could be described as mayhem in the streets.
The parade stomps through the streets of Athens, ending at the 40 Watt Club for a gigantic after-party! Parade information, pictures, directions, guidelines and more can be found at their website.
Wear a costume and be IN the parade. Even better: Form a "brigade" with your friends/coworkers/co-conspirators and use your creativity to put something even bigger together! (Floats, banners, performances and music welcome!)
