The 2nd Annual Great West End & Railroad Square Hand Car Regatta & Exposition of Mechanical & Artistic Wonders is happing this weekend in Santa Rosa, Calif. Known to those in the know as the Handcar Regatta, the eclectic steampunk-styled event is centered around a wild race down the train tracks. Teams with hand built cars will push their limits competing for the prize and all the glory. The MAKE fire truck will be there, not in case of fire, but to entertain and educate the public. I, your dedicated blogger and author of Feltique, will be on hand, along with the editors of MAKE magazine and Craftzine, to help you create your very own custom felt mustache! Don’t Goli and I look dapper in our photo from last year?
For more details and inspiration, check out the Regatta photo and video gallery, and my flickr set of mustaches from the Oakland Fire Arts Festival. Can’t wait to see you Sunday!
