Carousel Horse Race!

011
For our latest Improv Everywhere mission we surprised kids at a park by turning a carousel into a horse race!
020
We had announcers,
040
a trumpeter,
013
a betting table,
021
a jockey,
033
and lots of cheering fans.
023
The bell rang and the race was on!
078
The kids had no idea what was going on but soon realized they were in a real horse race!
087
A little boy won the race with his funny rabbit named Carrots on the Brain.
093
He was so excited that he ran up to his mom and kissed her on the cheek. After all, she's always been right by his side supporting him ;)

You make my day with these, Katie. The announcers did SUCH a GREAT JOB! I actually felt like cheering for them! Personally, I was rooting for Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, but it looks like the right kid won :)

The carousel itself is absolutely gorgeous! How beautiful is all the woodwork around the crown? That is probably the most cheerful, whimsical and delightful of the Improv Everywhere ideas I have heard of. That would have made for a most magical day. That is just beautiful.

Made my freaking day. And totally true, I would have never have picked the rabbit, I read my bedtime stories and I know he usually doesn't win. Kings to you assumptions, kings to you.

Little Dolly said...

Hi Katie! I am one of your biggest fans! I enjoyed reading your blog as much as I enjoy watching Improv Everywhere. But....I would like to understand what they are saying, I want to know what they said that got everyone laughing. You see, I am Deaf. :) So, I am wondering if you don't mind passing this message on to them to try adding the subtitles? I would like to laugh with them instead of guessing what is going on. :) Other than that, you guys rock! :D
