PREVIOUSLY: All Past Humboldt Approved Winners

# # #

LoCO‘s new year’s resolution? Get back to designating what in Humboldt is hot and what ain’t. 

After a few weeks off for dumb holidays, Humboldt Approved is back for 2014, baby. Attempt to remain calm. We’re gonna start things off with an easy one. New Orleans has Mardi Gras. Pamplona has the Running of the Bulls. What is our equivalent? Of all the circle-able community gatherings that populate HumCo’s annual calendar, which do you anticipate the most?

Simply, what is Humboldt’s best annual event?

Please note we’re asking this in January to be fair, since odds are good that your fav is months away — we promote zero favoritism here, kids. Now, if you’ve forgotten how to make your Humboldt Approved vote count, we now present our always enjoyable rules rundown:

To vote, look through the comments of this Humboldt Approved poll. If someone has already nominated the answer you would give for this week’s category, click the upvote arrow. If you don’t see your desired Humboldt Approved answer nominate it in a comment for others to upvote. (Please be careful to not duplicate answers; redundant answers will be deleted and potential associated upvotes will be lost.) Feel free to make your case by replying to/cheering on the answer you love most, but again the number by the arrows on the initial nomination is what counts.

You can vote for as many nominees as you deem worthy but, of course, the more you do that the more watered down your initial vote becomes. That’s math.

We reserve the right to delete superfluous/lame comments that make the voting/comment section hard to sift through. Please try not to get offended when your comment battle reply is deleted. We’re trying to do something here.

While many weeks we look for two winners — one winner from the metropolises of Eureka and Arcata, and one from Humboldt’s smaller communities — due to the nature of this category, this time we’re gonna limit it to one. Voting closes next Friday at noon and soon after a winner will be declared.
