    Diablo Freeride Park has put up an ad for this years Halloween event - Diabloween. It's supposed to be full of costumes, contests, music and riding.

    Did anyone go to last year's event? How was it? Is it worth staying the whole weekend?

    Bonus question: Are there any affordable hotels nearby?

    You should stay home on the couch. They could require me to wear a garbage bag and bedroom slippers and I'd still go if I lived as close as you do.

    Being in the south and hearing you north easterners debate whether or not it's worth riding 1000 feet of vert all weekend on a high speed lift is getting older by the day. :shakefist:

    Huh, looks like they are still holding a grudge against pinkshirtphotos. Never did hear the whole story about that

    I went last year too. It was my first time there and I had a blast. Everything there seems to be well put together.

    The events seem to be a cool mix of things to do and events to watch. We are definitely attending. My girlfriend might offer face painting for small fee.

    In the early years™, george ryan backflipped a table in a fvcking kool aid man costume. If you have to ask if you should be at this event, you don't deserve your mountain bike.
