I was the owner of Prima Dora on South Congress when I learned that the annual Keep Austin Weird Fun Run was going to trot by right out front of my business. This was in June, so it was already hot outside.

To play with the spirit of the thing, we asked an employee if she would be our beauty contestant. Katie said yes, and we dolled her up with a red sash that named her "Miss Prima Dora."

The Keep Austin Weird crowd were all in costume, and they loved the spraying water. It was a great day.
