Over the Falls - Print
The Boulder Creek Festival is the biggest event of the year in Boulder. Thousands of people gather to celebrate the beginning of summer along the creek. What is normally a peaceful creek-side path great for walking the dog or just chillin out becomes an all-out circus for three full days over Memorial Day Weekend...with hundreds of artists, vendors, dancers, musicians, carnival rides, and beer tents, it's a spectacle not to be missed. The culmination of the festival is it's main attraction... The Great Duck Race. I have always thought this was a ridiculous, but awesome idea. We are talking about thousands of rubber ducks dumped off the 9th St. bridge, which are then cheered on by their respective (sponsor) parents as they float down the creek. They have race course officials and finish line judges to monitor the whole shebang.. it's kind of a big deal. So I thought, what better way to celebrate my first year contributing to the festival than a crazy drawing of the rubber ducks?... "Over the Falls" is my tribute to the Boulder Creek Festival, The Great Duck Race, and the amazing summers in Boulder.
