This Saturday is the Red Bull Flugtag, one of the craziest events of the year when people try to launch their contraption and take flight over McCovey Cove. Many will nose drive directly into the water, which is half the fun.
Flugtag is German for flying day, which is the goal, as optimism abounds as each contraption nears the launch pad. Distance of flight isn’t the only condition for winning the contest; showmanship and creativity are judged, too. If you’ve seen the popular commercials featuring past Flugtags, you know serious creativity is on display.
Join in on the fun – especially because spectators stay dry while the flight crews are so lucky – this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. The event is free.
