So this very pink, very dashing Mr. Flamingo finally made it's debut after 2 years of missed opportunities. And the little guy did way better than expected! Totally stole the show around us! Albeit, we had competition from a fancy parrot, a preying sting ray and an impressive pirate ship - but that didn't deter the insane amount of photo ops our flamingo stacked up. Instant celebrity status! Never mind that there were a few memorable snafus along the way with the wind being all cray-cray. Like nailing a kid and knocking over a stack of bikes as the flamingo took a nose-dive, and Mike getting into one heck of an epic tangle. Professional kite flyers right here! Hah!
Overall, def one of the 'funner' Austin festivals I've been to as of late. There's something about fantabulous weather and colorful kites that brings the kid out in ya. It's just good ol' fashion fun!
besos ... jin.
