On Saturday, May 26, crowds gathered on the Arcata Plaza to see the blend of art, engineering and madness that is the parade of Kinetic Grand Championship teams and their wild rides. Around midday, after a kind of show and shine with spectators checking out the amphibious marvels and their brave crews, participants looped the plaza in the annual brake test and headed onto the course.

Enjoy the slideshow below and marvel at Mark McKenna's photos of the rolling sculptures (still shiny and new) on the plaza and Sam Armanino's shots from the infamous Dead Man's Drop in the dunes.
