Last year the October theme was “Hats and Noise.” But should we be doing reruns on themes or be thinking of new ones?
The current thoughts riding around in the collective Bike Happening Head are these:
1. Themes should be so easy that someone could find out the theme a half hour before the Bike Happening and be able to pull it off.
2. Simple is great but do we always cater to those who do everything last minute?
I think we should, at the very least, change up or add to an old theme before using it again. “Hats and Noise” might become “Pots and Pans and Coffee Can, a Hobo’s drum circle”
But I am also into simple and crazy themes like “Dollar Store Fashion Show” that might actually require someone to put out just a little more effort.
What do you think?????
BTW, November theme is “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) Google it for inspiration
