Fat-Ish weekend events, some of which continue today, include fat-tire bike racing and demos, free tubing, music and food and coffee vendors. All proceeds from both days will benefit the grooming efforts of the Range Area Mountain Bike Association, a nonprofit trail organization. (Journal photos by Corey Kelly)
