I go every year as a spectator but this year I decided that I was going to bike the 3rd of a mile run – armed with squirt guns and water balloons. The run begins at 2 pm from Queen Anne’s Paragon Bar and Restaurant to the finish line at Kerry Park. There is a strict dress code – white shirt, white pants, red scarf, and fast shoes. Don’t forget a rolled up newspaper to swat the herd of shopping carts resembling bulls, each donning horns, nose rings, and a case of ice cold beers.
Special thanks to Jael for my awesome Japanese transportation!
Afterwards, we went to the Dragon Fest held at Chinatown and enjoyed some tasty food trucks, delicious sake, great company, and live music!
