-Main Event-
Red Bull Flugtag
Saturday, April 29

It's no secret that a certain member of the SPM staff has an affinity (a.k.a an addiction) for Sugar Free Red Bull. Regardless of our desire to promote this lifeblood, the Flugtag looks like some serious fun. The name means "flying day" in German, and that's exactly what will be going on -- if by flying, you mean plummeting off a 30-foot ramp into Tempe Town Lake. More than 30 entrants have built "human-powered flying crafts" to compete in the Flugtag, and many wear outrageous costumes, perform skits and have their own musical soundtracks. Awards are given to the winners, but entertainment is free for all onlookers. Check it out at Tempe Town Lake -- gates open at 11 a.m., with the first "flight" departing at 1 p.m.
