Bridge! Bridge bridge bridge. Probably you heard about the bridge. If not: we have this Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, you see, and it officially "opened" this weekend. And if you heard it, then you probably know that by "open," we mean "not open at all."

Funny thing because of the spectacular-spectacular that was the three day ceremony. Somewhere in between a Parade of Giant Effing Awesome Puppets, a low-rider display, and The Relatives were our roving photographers Danny Hurley, Jay Barker and Mike Brooks. They brought back a number of photos, you might have seen, but below find our ten favoritely awesome ones.
