I propose “The Running of the Politicians.”
This might become a giant draw for local tourism. The city & state could come together and all state office holders could line up at say, 7th & Capitol. Citizen/voters could jam the streets and after a whistle is blown, the Politicians would race full steam toward the Capitol. Of course, the politicians would be escorted by their security staffs if applicable – and be required to swing a briefcase. Now this is where this event might differ from the event in Spain. Illinois residents would actually try to block the politicians from reaching the Capitol. We could wear football pads, build obstacles in the street, or simply lay down in piles of humanity deep enough to block their path.
Waddya say? This could be huuuuuge.
