No Pants Light Rail Ride 2013 in Downtown Phoenix When temperatures get a freezing as they have been lately then bundling up is the thing to do, right? Maybe, unless you happened to be one of the participants in this year's No Pants Light Rail, which took place on Sunday, January 13.

Riders who weren't in on the urban prank seemed plenty shocked as hundreds participated in sans-pants shenanigans as they traveled to downtown Phoenix and then walked to Angels Trumpet Ale House for an afternoon of drinking fun.
