Pink Flamingo

Pink Flamingo

2013 IGLA Pink Flamingo Follies!

Date: Saturday, August 17, 2013
Time: Noon – 5:30 PM
  Pink Flamingo begins at 4:30 pm
Location: Weyerhaeuser King County
  Aquatic Center
  650 SW Campus Drive
  Federal Way, WA 98023

The 2013 IGLA Pink Flamingo Follies should not be missed by anyone! The Pink Flamingo originated here in Seattle as part of a relay and made its debut in IGLA at the 1989 IGLA championships in Vancouver, BC.

The Pink Flamingo came out of the closet and revealed itself as a full blown queer extravaganza. The best way to describe it now is a drag/aqua follies/synchro show in water. It has to be seen to be believed!

While a show it may be, the competition is fierce! Teams put together a number and are judged for originality, presentation, artistry, form and camp.

Plan on being in Federal Way to watch the Pink Flamingo Follies! Bring your goggles because with the 2013 IGLA Pink Flamingo Follies – It Gets Wetter!

The Pink Flamingo Follies will start at 4:30 pm in the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center Pool.

From Noon until 4:30 pm there will be a beer garden behind the Aquatic Center where you can relax after a hard swim and grab a quick beer between watching the water polo championships, diving exhibitions and synchro competitions.

All ages.

There will be production numbers, special presentations, awards, speeches, an orchestra to stop the speeches, you get the idea!

So reward and refuel yourself with whole roasted salmon fillets roasted on sizzling alder wood planks or marinated grilled chicken breasts topped with corn & red pepper relish. Compliment your dinner with couscous salad topped with a medley of grilled seasonal vegetables and lightly steamed fresh local asparagus spears drizzled with tangy and refreshing citrus vinaigrette. And enjoy locally made bread from Essential Bakery.

Delicious food, team awards, entertainment, and a celebration of IGLA and the IGLA Championships.

  916 E Pike Street
  Seattle, WA

It’s been a great week you swam and played and dived and synchroed like a champion and you partied like a rock star. Good job! Plan on checking out B*tches Who Brunch at the Lobby Bar. The nice kind of b*tches. The kind you like having mimosas with… like Mermosa & Juanita DeFuca!

Brunch will include a buffet of all the meat you like in the morning. If you’re into eggs, we’ll have those too. We recognize that you gay boys and girls can’t live on eggs and bacon alone, and that is why we will be providing a full cereal bar.

What’s a cereal bar you ask? Picture this, scrumptious cocoa puffs mixed with kahlua, vodka, and milk. It’s a good thing! I go coocoo for cocoa puffs. Multiple cereal and liquor options will be provided – the possibilities are endless.

$2 Magnum Mimosas
$5 Spicy Hey Mary!s

Brunch is not where the tragic happens, but it is where we talk about it! *smooch*
