Amtrak Gets A Butt-Load Of Attention

LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Pants-off parties are fun – no matter what side of the tracks you’re from.

On Saturday (Jul. 12), as many as 6,000 people will head to the train tracks behind the Mugs Away Saloon in Laguna Niguel, California, and drop trow for the 29th Annual Mooning of Amtrak.

The bare-bottom bash began nearly 30 years ago, when a man bought a beer for everyone who mooned the passing Amtrak train, and since then, the event has turned into a pants-off party with men, women, and mooners atop RVs getting in on the bare booty action.

A bartender from the Mugs Away Saloon named Rebecca says, “Some people come by with their children, but I wouldn’t bring my son, that’s for sure. We open around seven that morning, so I imagine most people are drunk.”

While baring your butt isn’t everyday behavior, Rebecca says local sheriffs “turn a blind eye” to it.

And it isn’t just a one-sided event – trains slow down when passing the mooning masses, and many passengers proudly pull down their pants too.
