Every 4th of July, Hermosa Beach holds a secret event. The only thing is that almost everyone knowns about it. Hermosa likes to combine the two things that it is known for and does best - athletics and getting drunk.
The Iron Man is a short swim, run and surf competition. Oh yeah, you must chug-a-lug a 6 pack of beer and puke at the end. Of course hundreds of people are cheering you on as the police provide protection from unruly crowds.
Well, that is our pathetic excuse of a celebration. Here are a few photos documenting this great city tradition. Bottoms up.
