It's time to get your pink on and head to Southwest Harbor for the Annual Flamingo Festival this Saturday and Sunday July 9th and 10th. This year's theme is Flamingo Fiesta so get your biggest sombrero and come ready to have a great time!

The Flamingo Festival is one of my favorite annual events. The Festival, put on by the Harbor House in Southwest Harbor is in honor of Don Featherstone, the creator of the plastic flamingo lawn ornament! For many years, Don and his wife Nancy would come to Southwest Harbor in their matching clothes, all handmade by Nancy.
