Wacky, Crazy, Human-Powered

The Klamath Kinetic Challenge is one of my favorite events of the year! Cooky, wacky, crazy, and creative are the best ways to describe it. Costumes, giant sculptures, crazy's a great time.

For anyone who doesn't know, it's basically a race between these giant, homemade, human-powered vehicles that must be able to travel over land, sand, mud, rocks, and the water. There are really no rules and the judges take bribes:) It's basically a Dr. Suessian race.

It's probably just best to show you in photos:
My niece and nephew stand in front of the Banana Split Sculpture

Last year, this sculpture was a dragon, this year they added a mustache to make it a Lorax

The Kinetic Kops

This post-apocoloyptic cockroach had real working pincers and lots of details

Spectators dress up like this guy with silver paint

or this guy that my niece wanted a photo of

And the cockroach takes off 

The banana splits....
So if you like creativity, a little wackiness, and a whole lotta Dr. Seussian fun, you should add it to your list.
