2014 Sparks Halloween Bash

November 28, 2014

I had hoped to begin my trip to Sparks for the annual Biker Halloween Party on Thursday, October 24, but my departure was delayed until early Friday morning. Bike games were already in progress when I arrived at about 11:30, so I postponed setting up camp until later in the day and instead headed for the “playground” area. Friday’s bike games and people games included plank ride, horseshoe toss, basketball shoot, potato race (with tennis balls), titty licking, buff the woody, wienie bite, keg toss (men’s and women’s), drinking and riding (Don’t try this at home.), butt darts, dizzy race, sex positions, and circular potato race. Winners of each game received colorful plaques with artwork representing each event. For example, the plaque for the slow ride featured a cartoon biker mounted on a giant snail.
