The Activities

Below you'll find a preliminary set of activities:

Friday Events

The world's fastest parade (55 miles per hour) begins the festivities.

Pre-Parade Party. Since everyone enjoys getting together before the big parade, we're changing things up this year. The parade pre-party begins at Chillz on Highway 24 at 4:30PM-6:00PM. Food and beer will be available for purchase and everyone is encouraged to hang out at their outdoor patio.

Parade Lineup. Everyone should be in line for the parade by 5:30PM in front of Chillz. The parade will begin promptly at 6:00PM. This year's theme is "SUPERHEROES". We look forward to seeing your costumes and car/truck decorations.

First Feature Film. Activities begin at the Wayne Theatre at 6:30 P.M. with a short film focusing on the theme and a costume contest. The feature film "Batman: The Movie" follows. As always, wonderful door prizes will be given.

The Party. Around 9:00 P.M. Friday night after the first screening, the "Party of the Stars" will be held with food, drinks, and a band. This year, the venture has changed to The Rim Rock Patio east of Torrey. What hasn't changed is our favorite band, The Sister Wives! The party includes wonderful food and drink.

Saturday Morning Events

Swap Meet. Saturday morning at 9 A.M. starts off with our trademark Swap Meet at the Robber's Roost Bookstore in Torrey. Bring some stuff to swap and find some treasures.

Pioneer Days. The Pioneer History and Music program is held at the Teasdale Cultural Center for those interested in local and state history.

Mutton & Taters Dutch Oven Lunch. At noon, BIFF participants go to Teasdale (8 miles southwest of Torrey) for the Teasdale Volunteer Fire Department's Mutton & Taters Dutch Oven fund raiser which begins at noon at the Teasdale Park Shelter House.

Saturday Afternoon Events

Second Feature Film. The second festival film begins at 2:00 P.M. at the Wayne Theatre. Few people has seen the great 1990 B-movie, "Captain America". This event includes audience participation, special guests, and spectacular prizes. This year we'll be doing a "Mystery Science Theatre" type approach which will be lots of fun! Look for superheroes, villians, and lots of goofy activities.

Famer's Market. Many film fans enjoy the Farmer's Market from 4-6PM.

Saturday Evening Events

Third Feature Film. The grande finale begins at 6:30 P.M. with an introduction, trivia, and showing of our final feature film, "Flash Gordon". In addition, you'll enjoy our first annual Independent Film Awards viewings based on our superhero theme.

The Party. The BIFF "It's a Wrap Party" begins after the movie at 9:00PM with food, drinks, and a band. Be sure to stay for fabulous prizes like Sunglow Restaurant pies! The party will be held at Chillz in downtown Torrey again this year. The Main Street Revelators will provide entertainment. This three-piece electric blues band will play a wide variety of music.
