Live at the Handcar Regatta

Craft & Design Home

Today the Craft and Make teams held it down at the Great Santa Rosa Hand Car Regatta. The scene along the tracks was controlled chaos, with equal parts corsets and mustaches. Hand built mechanical wonders flew down the tracks, drag race style, and my team and car, the Bumpin’ Contraption finished 4th!

Les Claypool announced the races. Children ran rampant on the rail road tracks. Costumes were SO inspiring. Musicians and magicians roamed around. It was like traveling through time to the past and the future simultaneously.
I’m off to pack up the Make Firetruck. Phew! If you were there, share your images in the Craft Flickr pool!
