More information can be found here:

We did a "Blue Man Group" style event, with no blue allowed.

We showed up, wandered around the Minnesota State Fair, and just had a wonderful time as normal people of varying colors. We even made the local Fox 9 News live.

Our theme was "Unity". No matter what color you are, you can always have fun at the State Fair.

It was a blast!

This was a fiddler just outside of the fair, notice us sneaking up behind him. We all surrounded him and had a photo taken.


Here we all are as we waited for the Fox anchor to come back to us with the camera live at the Fair.

The bald guy wig failed. I removed it, you still see some of the glue on my forehead.

My mission log from the beginning:

After applying the makeup and the bald guy cap, we stopped at the dollar store to pick up some gloves.

As we backed out of the parking spot, someone walking through the lot stopped dead in her tracks. She stopped and stared.

I couldn't move because she was standing in front of the car staring at us... So finally, she continued on, and I gave her a real brief description of the event. She said "Have fun!".

Not 10 seconds later, another car was pulling around when the driver noticed my face was the same color as my car. She appeared to nearly have a heart attack... It was funny.

We drove to the Mall of America to pick up the bus from there, and that is where we met Steve. (The purple dude!)

Me next to my car.


We helped him get all greased up for the pig wrassling... And then waited for Dan and Scott to show up. While waiting, Mark (The Incredible Hulk) showed up, very well painted. We were all impressed by his body painting skills. If you need a body painted, he is the guy to do it!


We made jokes with our bus driver about discriminating based on the color of our skin. He was a great sport and played along. Metro Transit bus drivers have a great sense of humor! More on this later.

Once we arrived at the State Fair bus stop, we realized that my bald man wig was coming off. Not good. So I ripped it off. Very painful with the spirit gum.



I had planned on shaving my head for the event, but decided against it.
At the bus stop, we got all sorts of strange looks from passersby as we helped each other prepare for the event.

Dan looking at the camera.




Steve (Droona) ran off to check himself in the mirror.


Several people came by with their kids, so I shared the love by spreading the grease paint! (No photos sadly.)

More prepwork being done.



ShortStuff using the vending machines as a mirror.


More participants from Facebook showed up to help out! I didn't catch all their names, as things were getting pretty hectic.

They brought their own water based paints and went to town!

Lots of people stopped and asked what we were doing. Handing them a business card with the website on it with a brief description of the group seemed to suffice.

"Dude! You missed a spot!"


The unwitting fiddler got a lot of attention! He was a great sport.


Heading into the fair!


Big Brother is watching you!


The adventure begins!


Wait, is that the Hulk I see?


At the News Stand, seeking autographs from some on-air personalities! They weren't in, so we left dejected.


Wait, what's this?


[southpark]IT'S COMING RIGHT FOR US![/southpark]


In the arcade, having fun!


Watching Oompa Loompa #1 do the Dance machine.



Here I am showing off my manliness by getting my butt kicked by a punching bag.



Quick! EVERYONE GO THAT WAY!


From left to right, Me, Nikki, Someone from Facebook, and Zach!


We tried to ride the bikes at WCCO to help power their broadcast. We were turned away as they were closing.


Random Shots of us.


We made our way around the fair and found ourselves back at our pre-ordained meeting spot.

We had lost several of the crew, and were waiting for them to come back.

Saying Hi to several of the passers-by.


One of our outstanding photographers!


"We're off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Odd." Yes, I said that right. lol


We milled around for a while, and gave people business cards if they asked us why we were painted.
Then we conga-lined over to the Fox 9 news stand.


"Wait. What? Is that dude Yellow?!"


Posing.


Oompa Loompa


We ended up on Fox Live at 9 news, where the weatherman Ian Leonards gave us a quick blurb.

Very cool of him.

I heard all sorts of comments from people "Why are you red?" I pointed them towards Scott.
People gave us the thumbs up, and hugged us. It was such a blast. Little kids stopped and stared, and people thought it was cool overall.

Once we got back on the bus, we noticed Steve, who had left earlier was on it already with his bucket of Cookies from Aunt Martha.

The Bus driver boarded the bus about 5 minutes later. As we were pulling out, he came on the overhead speaker and said "I see red people on the bus." We all cheered, and I said "We have Green and Purple too!".

He then says "We don't allow red people on the bus."
The bus got real quiet, and I said "Are you discriminating against me based on the color of my skin?" to which he replied laughingly, "I guess I am!". The bus all laughed along. (Not sure if that is a good thing or not, but several of the ethnic people on the bus laughed along as well.)

When we got back to the MOA lot, Steve had no ride home, so we piled into my Fiero, all three of us in a two seater car and we drove him home. His cookies were in the trunk of my car. As we pulled away from dropping him off, I did not think about the cookies. He had though!

He had run through his neighbor's yard and was standing in the middle of the road on the backside of the loop waiting for us. I almost got away with his cookies!

I had a blast! It was a ton of fun and THANK YOU EVERYONE for coming out!
