The Wild Rumpus Parade and Spectacle celebrated its 10th anniversary last weekend, with thousands of costumed partiers taking it to the streets of downtown Athens to celebrate Halloween. Check out photos from the event below, courtesy of Flagpole's Whitley Carpenter:
Dogs in Halloween costumes roamed the streets of the Boulevard neighborhood Sunday for the fourth annual Boo-le-Bark on the Boulevard parade and contest. Flagpole photographer Whitley Carpenter was there to capture the canine cuteness:
Build all the amphitheatres, Athens. But the perfect outdoor venue already exists off Wolfskin Road, at Cloverleaf Farm, a painstakingly preserved pristine Southern property now in its third century of usefulness.
Slopfest returned to Little Kings Shuffle Club and Hi-Lo Lounge last weekend, with a four-day showcase of Athens' underground rock scene. Flagpole photographer Savannah Cole was on hand to capture some of the action. Check out her photos below:
A regional flyball tournament at the Classic Center last weekend brought some very good puppers—and their people—to Athens from all over the Southeast.
In flyball, two teams of four dogs each race over a series of hurdles, then trigger a spring-loaded box to release a ball that they fetch and carry back to their handlers. The sport provides dogs with mental stimulation and physical exercise while creating camaraderie among teammates and building a bond between canines and their human handlers.
The annual tournament took place July 13 and 14 and was hosted by Double Dog Dare, a flyball club out of Winterville.
