Where: Laguna Niguel, California, USA
Annual Amtrak Mooning season concerns a touch of nudity and alcohol so therefore thoroughly deserves its place here. This rather bizarre event occurs annually in July, which is just as well otherwise there might be some blue posteriors otherwise.
You’re probably looking at the image here and are most likely wondering what is it, and how did it came about? Well, one K T Smith was drinking in the Mugs Away Saloon (the event’s annual location – actually the chain link fence opposite is the actual location, but stick with it) in 1979 when he suddenly offered a drink to anyone who showed his/her bared posterior to the next train that came along. Now my maths isn’t the best, but I do reckon that he was probably seriously out of pocket that day!
This event takes place both day and night with lanterns being attached to the fence after dark.
Lots of people take part (as Google Images will attest), so maybe it is a festival after all?
