    • When you purchase a "Personal Flocking" though the website's Online Store you are honored with your very own coveted Pink Flamingo set up in your yard. If you haven't already purchased one for you, your family, friends or foes get it done soon to have it delivered on the 20th.

    • If you would like to participate in delivering the "Personal Flockings" meet at David Applegate’s shop, 1440 Government Street, on Wednesday, January 20, at dark-thirty (6:30ish) to get the fun started and enjoy watching the reactions of the ones who receive their coveted bird! All are welcome.

    • It's almost time for the Flock of Flamingos to Nest on the Lake! On Friday night, January 22, the flock will get their swimming lessons. All are welcome to come and join in the fun. Meet at David Applegate's shop, 1440 Government Street, at dark-thirty (6:30ish) to transport the Flamingos to their destination.

    • David Applegate is looking for a float that can accommodate our Grand Marshal, Nick Spitzer, and his entourage, totaling 12 people. You would adopt our Grand Marshal and he would adopt you. The float would get a premium line up position on Spanish Town Road and Grand Marshal signage to relieve you of decorating (if you’re the lazy type). If you are interested please use the Contact Page on the website to submit your information and it will be passed along to David.
