  • Texas Tomato Battle
    At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

  • Magic Bus Tours
    Though Magic Bus Tours' 21-seat limo bus isn't actually magic, it may as well be. Why? Because it transports its visitors to places and times they wouldn't otherwise be able to traverse. During the Fort Collins History Bus Tour, guests visit the site of the 100-year old Fort Collins Festival, hear the tales of bank robbers of yore, and glimpse the rolling countryside where pioneers played games of Go Fish by the light of blazing campfires. The Ghost Tour whisks guests throughout the city where they'll see ghost-hunting equipment up close, view paranormal videos and photos, and learn about the otherworldly happenings in the town's history. In addition, guests can bar hop and sample multiple craft beers on the Fort Collins Brewery Tour, visit local farms during the Farm to Table Tour, and stroll through Fort Collins' Old Town district during the aptly titled Old Town Walking Tour.
