Also known as Eeyore’s Birth­day Par­ty. Not that the name makes any more sense, but this year was the 50th annu­al cel­e­bra­tion. Oh Austin. You can google the actu­al event and read the his­to­ry.Eeyores-birthday-2013-4

I tried to most­ly stay away from just tak­ing pic­tures of wacky peo­ple, so I focused on wacky ani­mals and their peo­ple instead. And Abbie’s very pop­u­lar paint­ed bel­ly.

Snake #1 — Burmese python

Snake #2

When you lit­er­al­ly have to go see a man about a horse.

Best body and body paint­ing spot­ted at the fes­ti­val

Ok. So I took a few pic­tures of just wacky peo­ple.

Eey­ore!

Ham­ming it up

This guy didn’t fare so well.

Don’t bring your cat to the fes­ti­val.

The sug­ar glid­er was not actu­al­ly the cutest pet there, but it was a close sec­ond.

The best seri­ous cos­tume

I respect the group and their (short) protest, but we had to move because of the declin­ing air qual­i­ty.

I think she went with Robin Hood.

Art­sy black and white is the only way this looks good.

I think I was over­all glad to not be drink­ing at this event. There are many ways to expe­ri­ence Eeyore’s Birth­day, and I found it very inter­est­ing as a sober per­son. Times sure change. I have to accept that I’m just not as hip as I think I am, or was.
