Drunken revelry with a side of altruism -- and the infamously crispy hop of Fat Tire beer -- is behind the Tour De Fat, which includes a costumed bike parade and drinking stops at designated locales. The parade, which kicks things off, is followed by the tapping of frosty kegs at 6 p.m. To truly comprehend this festival, realize the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle motto of New Belgium Brewery. So when the portly evangelist cries out, "Would you trade your car for this bike?," he's talking about a custom Black Sheep commuter for your piece of poo polluter. The Gadabout Orchestra, Ukulele Lokis Folderol Follies, and the soulful nine-piece Lord Loves A Working Man will supply the soundtrack to the shenanigans.
