The Rumpus runs Wild in Athens again

Every year since it's inception the Wild Rumpus has grown larger and larger in Athens. I heard so many people say leading up to the rumpus, "I've never heard of it. I think I'll check it out this year" or simply, "I'm finally going to come down for the parade" and this year's crowd definitely reflected that attitude.  Hosted by Timi Conley, local Athens musician and one of my absolute favorite guitar players, he marched the crazies around downtown ending at stage of fire spinners and freaks before jumping on stage and funking out the evening.
