If you've always wanted to dress up in weird clothes and fly into Lake Carolyn in Las Colinas, this is your year.
Red Bull Flugtag -- this is the flying one, not the crashing-into-shit one -- is coming to DFW on September 21, and is still looking for teams to send their contraptions soaring to destruction.
Judges will be looking for high-flying, creative machines with a heavy dose of showmanship by the crew. Helmet and life jacket are provided; safety is definitely not guaranteed.
The event is free to spectators and participants, and the Observer will have some lakeside VIP viewing, amply stocked with beer, of course. Submit your applications by June 1 here.
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE...

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
