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 which 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 a local club (TBA) for a gigantic after-party!! Parade information, pictures, directions, guidelines, and more can be found at their website. 


This year's theme, "RAWR" pays homage to the great giver of life, radiant ball of bursting flame and light- THE SUN! The Sun rules Leo and is also associated with The Heart... Get ready to plasma-fy yourself and shine in all your wild solar flare brilliance!!!


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!)
