Celebrate Easter By Hurling Yourself Down Vermont Street

In lieu of egg hunts and church services this Easter Sunday, hundreds will instead hurl themselves down Vermont Street in Big Wheels. (Yes, we mean the plastic thing you rode as a child.)

Jon Brumit's annual Bring Your Own Big Wheel event sees the city's most creative cats emerge from the alleyways, donning costumes from Fred Flintstone to Dracula, steering trikes, bikes, wagons and more. (We do recommend protective garb, as well; that's one nasty hill to take a tumble.)

Racers will take off at 4pm from Vermont and 20th Streets on April 12; most years, there are multiple runs, should you miss the first heat.
