Welcome, you are probably wondering what in the world is the Flamingo Fanatics Fling??
It is quite simple, like me, I bet you are a member of one or two flamingo groups on Facebook. We are really really passionate about Flamingos, and we are Fanatics about the pink feather bird. Back in 2019 someone posted “Hey we should all get together at the Flamingo in Las Vegas to meet each other!” I am not one of those people that just sits around and wait for others to do something. With my travel & event planning background I just thought “no problem I can do that!” So, I began planning the very first ever Convention for Flamingo Lovers. The initial date set was October 2020, well we all know what happen then, so we had to postpone until September of 2021.
Hopefully as a country we can turn things around soon and we can all get back to gathering with our flock and enjoying life again. This convention is an opportunity for likeminded folks to come together, get silly laugh and just have some good old fashion fun while also sharing their passion of the Pink Flamingo. After the past year we all have experienced I think this is a great opportunity for us to kick back and relax. Plus is a great way to make lasting friendships.
Since I have announced my plan to hold the first Flamingo Convention, I have received nothing but positive feedback, of course, a few think that I have lost my marbles and that includes my closest friends, but I am out to prove to them that other like Flamingo Fanatics understand me. We now have a team of about 10 people on the planning committee working with me to help plan a Flamazing Flamingo Convention Experience.
That about sums it up, The Flamingo Fanatic Fling 2021 is just a group of people that are passionate but Flamingo and are coming together to celebrate. Are you going to be one of Them?
aka Crazy Flamingo lady, with a purpose.
