The BBC.co.uk website has an article about how the police have successfully quashed the 2009 Halloween Naked Pumpkin run, a yearly event that takes place on the Pearl St. Mall here in Boulder, CO. Here's a link to the article. I was down on the Mall to film a flash mob and although it was fun to film I felt a little pang of sadness that I wans't going to be sprinting after 200 naked people with my video camera in hand. This year, there were around 4000 people on the mall, mostly in costume, all having a good time. The demise of the annual Pumpkin Run was also reported in the Wall St. Journal - the article can be found here. I'm sad that the good natured, fun event has been shut down by Mark Beckner, Boulder's Chief of Police but I have a feeling that this won't be the end of the Naked Pumpkin Run.
