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.

53,275,923 people. That's how many passengers used Denver International Airport over the course of 12 months ending with January 2013, good enough for 13th place on the list of the busiest airports in the world. Given DIA's relatively removed location, lack of public transportation options, and all the legal red tape involved with growing wings, all those passengers mean one thing: cars.
USAirport Parking is up to the challenge of keeping those cars safe and their owners at ease. Located a 10-minute shuttle ride from the airport terminal, the lot can be hard to fathom by numbers alone: 60 acres of fenced-in pavement, 1,200 covered spaces, and a maximum capacity of 8,000 vehicles. For car owners, it's a simple process: simply park the vehicle in an empty space, and then catch the airport shuttle that runs every 7 to 10 minutes between 7 a.m. and midnight?and by request at any other time. An attentive and friendly staff keeps watch at all times. Where the power of human observation ends, a 24-hour camera system fills in to catch any foul play or UFO landings.
Mile High Drives shares its passion for supercars with fellow adrenaline seekers, compiling an impressive collection of rare and high-end sports cars. The staff wants other drivers to feel the supple, red-and-black custom seats of a Lamborghini Gallardo, feel the grip of a brand-new 2014 Corvette Stingray as it takes corners, and experience the powerful acceleration of a BMW M5, which can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds—the same time it takes to dry wet hair in a Porsche Boxster convertible. Mile High Drives is forever improving its fleet for maximum performance, ramping up horsepower and modifying exhaust systems for optimal revving. In addition to rentals, the crew offers chauffeur services that allow passengers to arrive at events in style.
It's a charity race with a back story like none other: bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire?lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as "citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and chase citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.
Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures?held across the United States?entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives. Click here for a video of past races.
