New Belgium Brewing brings more bikes, beer and entertainment to Golden Gate Park on September 13 with its annual Tour de Fat party, headlined by comedian Reggie Watts.
The events starts with a costumed bicycle parade from 11am to noon at Lindley Meadow before the party settles with beer tastings and live entertainment. Performances include live music from the Handsome Little Devils and Reggie Watts, yo-yo stunts, vaudeville acts and a dance contest and bike contest.
The winner of “Thousand Person Dance Contest” will win a 2014 New Belgium Cruiser Bike. There will also be a fashion show for the best Tour de Fat costumes.
