While some engine enthusiasts will be flocking to Car Craft Summer Nationals in St. Paul, a rowdier crowd will be partying it up at the Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow. Here you'll find ladies rocking facial hair, dudes in dresses, and folks with plenty of tattoos and piercings in attendance. There will also be some amazing rides to check out, including choppers, rat bikes, side cars, low riders, hot rods, scooters, and everything in between, from new vehicles with colorful paint jobs to setups that appear to be held together with rusty beer cans (and probably are). Folks with sweet rides can enter their wheels in a variety of contest categories for top bragging rights and a trophy worthy of any mantle (last year's awards were tattooed piglets in a jar). Needless to say, there will be awesome people-watching all day, and it's a great opportunity to sport your best summertime freak show finery. During the day, there will also be plenty of things to eat and drink from the likes of Pizza Lucé, 331 Club, Modern Cafe, PBR, 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey, and others.
