Friends don't let friends drink and bike... without a costume.

Friends don't let friends drink and bike... without a costume.

Ann Morrison Park will be filled with carnival chaos during New Belgium Brewing's Tour de Fat, a day of yo-yo performances, bike contests, vaudeville acts and, of course, beer. Thousands of people--many wearing costumes worthy of a Broadway musical--cram into the park with bikes tied to every fence, street sign, picnic table, bench and tree in the vicinity.

The event includes a bike parade, fashion show, slow-ride race and 1,000-person dance contest. Music comes from The Reals Band at 12:20 p.m., The Handsome Little Devils at 1:40 p.m., Yo-Yo People at 2:45 p.m. and Blind Pilot at 4 p.m.

To get warmed up, head over to Radio Boise's PreFat Block Party on Friday, Aug. 15, from 4-11 p.m. PreFat takes over Eighth Street from Idaho to Bannock streets with a giant stage and a lot of beer. The music lineup includes The Blue Rider, Ancient Psychic, Clarke and the Himselfs, Northern Giants, Ssssnake, Psycache, DJ Jason D and DJ Chakra Khan. By Sunday, you may need to book a ticket for the Tour de Hair of the Dog.
