Fort Collins Tour de Fat: check out the costumes, the scene and a very interesting emergency radio conversation
Ah, Tour de Fat. Once you can hear the first responder talking about whether a unicorn or horse is walking down the street in emergency radio communication.
“Can you see if it is a real horse or a unicorn in a car?” Someone asked in response to a caller’s report that he thought someone was riding a real horse in the parade and did not “think” This is safe.”
“A unicorn and a horse…they are not the same animal,” another voice replied.
By the way, this is a unicorn – more specifically, a “full-size unicorn on a trailer.” Look for it in the video above.
Thousands of dressed bike riders – at least the unicorn – took over Fort Collins’ annual New Belgium Brewing De Fat Parade and party on Saturday.
If you are unable to participate in the parade, or just want to revisit the journey, check out our 2018 clothing gallery:
