Mooning of the Amtrak - Orange County - California

A Free Drink If I Moon The Train?

An annual event, The Mooning of the Amtrak started in July, 1979, at the "Mugs Away Saloon" when someone offered to buy a drink for anyone who would go outside and 'moon' the next Amtrak train. It's hardly a surprise that a lot of the patrons took him up on his offer and it has been an annual tradition ever since. Please note that no one makes the free drink offer any more!

Drop Your Pants - Or Skirts!

Thousands of pants-dropping or skirt-lifting participants line up along the fence outside the bar and moon as the trains pass. Originally more of a "see it if you see it" kind of thing for the passengers, these days the trains are packed and the engineers even slow the trains down. How's that for cooperation?

And like all good little events, they grow into great big events. Initially empty, the street is now lined with vendors of all kinds, RVs, tons of people and between trains it isn't uncommon for a wet t-shirt contest to break out or to see ladies getting naked in little swimming pools.

Of course no public nudity event would be complete without some sort of bead-bartering, the primary source of cash being bare breasts. As you can see from the images, there's no shortage of beads or of entrepreneurial females.

Aim to arrive by 9am as we're told that the parking spots close to the bar are gone after that. As for what to bring, go for the staples such as food, drinks, snacks, music, chairs, sunscreen, etc. Beads are optional, but buy them beforehand if you plan on engaging as we're sure someone will be selling them there for a premium if you don't.

Update: The parking situation has hit critical mass and people are advised not to try driving into the event directly. Traffic is SLOW and parking spots are just not available after a certain point and local businesses have resorted to having people towed, unfortunately. Get there early or be prepared to walk a couple of miles if need be. Motorcycles apparently have no problem and there are tons of spots for them.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO NUDITY:

The town is cracking down on the event, so full nudity is not allowed, and neither is drinking in public.

EVENT ATTITUDE TO CAMERAS:

Everything is held on public property, so cameras are fine. Everyone seems to be OK with pictures being taken, but you should probably ask first just to be safe.
