Pretty in Pink Flamingo Festival

Posted by on Jul 12, 2014 in Event, People

Pink, pink, and more pink is the color of the weekend during the annual Pink Flamingo Festival in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Sponsored by the Harbor House, a non-profit organization serving the communities of Mount Desert Island, the festival boasts a parade, craft fair, kids carnival and lots more. The awesome Southwest Harbor Public Library puts on their paperback book sale that weekend and the United States Coast Guard hosts an open house. One other event, which I participated in, is the Flamingo 4-Miler road race from Seawall Picnic Area in Acadia National Park to the Tremont School. My time of 35:01 at a pace of 8:46 earned me a 51st place finish overall and a second to last position in a field of 9 men aged 50-59. There are some fast old guys here on MDI! If you missed the festival next year, be sure to attend in 2015. And whether you were there or not, put on your sunglasses and enjoy the photos!
