50 Days of Dragon Con Day 16

Kilt Blowing

Have you ever heard of kilt blowing?  Neither had I.  Apparently it is an annual event at con.  One year I decided to go to see what all of the hubub was all about.  Kilt blowing is exactly as it sounds.  The host, Jennie Breeden, is on the floor with a leaf blower and people come up on the stage to have their kilt blown up.  Many of the participants know exactly what they are getting into, many do not.  The fun is watching the participants play it up.  You also get to see who is wearing something underneath their kilt.  This is so much fun to watch.  Men and women participate and are in the audience.  Of course, the best seat in the house is on the floor in front of the stage.  Even if you are in the back you get to see the production and everyone involved has a good time.  Due to the nature of this event, it is held pretty late in the evening so you will have to be on the look out.
Here is a video of the events a few years ago:
