Hundreds of Valley residents had some cheeky fun on Sunday, January 7, when they dropped trou and rode the rails during Phoenix’s No Pants Light Rail Ride 2017. The annual urban prank, which has been around since 2009, features pantsless participants going for a ride aboard Valley Metro's public transportation trains and having a blast while doing so. (They also earn plenty of amused stares from other riders.) This year’s event featured a large crowd and a hearty after-party at DeSoto Central Market.
