Submission + - Towel Day is upon us! (towelday.org)

An anonymous reader writes: Douglas Adams died about ten years ago and fans have not forgotten about the beloved humorous science fiction author. On Towel Day (May 25th), they carry their best towel and organize events all over the planet.
Examples: a gladiator towel fight (France), concerts (Denmark & Russia), a march against Vogon Violence (Brazil), a talk on science in the Hitchhiker’s Guide (UK), guided tours (Germany & UK), etc. People are gathering in parks and bars, and there’s a lot of drinking, movie viewing, flashmobbing, hitchiking and creative work going on.

A Canadian group recently ran a contest to select an Intergalactic Towel Day Ambassador for Earth. The winner was Ms Deena Roth of Tennessee, USA.
