Other Cities

The 14th Annual No Pants Subway Ride will take place on Sunday, January 11 in New York City. More info with the meeting point and start time will be posted to this site about one week in advance. Save the date, and sign up for our email list to stay updated. You can RSVP on Facebook (optional, but appreciated.) You can also RSVP for the afterparty.

Once again we are encouraging folks in other cities around the world to stage their own No Pants Subway Rides on the same day. Regional organizers must fill out this registration form to have their event included (that form is for organizers only.) The week before the event we will publish a list of all participating cities along with links to Facebook events. Groups have staged the event on trolleys, light rails, and buses in the past, so don’t let a lack of subway system stop you! 60 cities participated last year. Check the list on this page to see if one happened in your city last year as preference will go to the prior year’s organizers. If you are an organizer, feel free to leave a link to your Facebook event in the comments on this page.

If you are unfamiliar with this tradition, you can read the history here: The No Pants Subway Ride.

The Pirates of Central Park

Created and Directed by Charlie Todd / Produced by: Deverge / Music by Tyler Walker

For our latest mission, we staged a pirate invasion on the Central Park Lake, converting a rowboat rental into a pirate ship. Actors dressed as pirates from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction set sail on the lake, searching for the keys to their treasure chest. The pirates interrogated the New Yorkers and tourists on other rowboats and by the shore, much to their delight.
