Download the Scruff app, practice your best Chewbacca voice and get your (man)hunting license because Bear Season begins this Thursday.
Nearly 2,000 bears from all over the world are coming out of hibernation and hitting the Dallas streets for Texas Bear Round Up. This year’s theme is Casino Bear Royale and there will be costume parties, group excursions to Club Dallas, BearDance, Bear Bingo with Paul J. Williams, a Bear BBQ and Bear T-Dance, just to name the, um, bear minimum.
Performers include Austin Babtist Women (above) and a concert featuring musicians and performers of the Bear community in an event titled appropriately enough, Bearapalooza.
Several great charities benefit from the weekend’s events, so not only will it be a non-stop party, but one with a worthwhile mission.
Online registration has ended, but there are plenty of tickets available for various events on-site. Simply refer to the full weekend schedule for a detailed list of fur- and fun-filled opportunities.
Simply put, Texas Bear Round Up is the best event around for bears and their admirers.
Just make sure to stock up on dental floss for the weekend. We have a feeling you’ll be picking lots of hair out of your teeth.
