Night of the Walking Red V

night of the walking red 2014The League of Extraordinary Red Heads will once again gather at Ryan's Wake in Troy on October 4 for The Night of the Walking Red. Blurbage:

The fiery festivities feature an autumnal rite known as the "Toast of The Coppertops," during which members of the red-haired collective raise glasses of seasonal Pumpkin Ale (this year's batch is by Ithaca Beer Co.). Looming above them will be a 15-foot vinyl sign bearing the League's registered trademark logo and the concisely stated: "Agenda 1) Us. 2) Them."
There will be a sunset group photograph on the deck at 6:15 p.m. Entertainment will include a caricature artist, a photo booth, a t-shirt printing station provided by Troy Cloth & Paper and other fun activities. Admission is free. Children are welcome with supervision. The League gives special recognition to "Distinguished White Heads," such as Santa Claus, whose ginger hair has turned white. Un-red heads are also welcome to witness the crimson jubilee.

The league, founded by Duncan Crary, is about fostering ginger fellowship and solidarity -- and a good time for everyone.

The festivities begin that day -- a Wednesday -- at 4 pm. There were more than 200 people at last year's event.
