What's On

There’s A Flamingo Festival On This Weekend Because Why Not

Just when you thought Welcome To Thornbury were out of surprises...

The North’s biggest food truck park just announced it’s throwing a huge Flamingo Festival this weekend. It’s all in celebration of...well....we’re not sure. Flamingos, presumably. Maybe long-legged alkaline wading birds in general.

Whatever—if it means pink cocktails, we’re on board.

So what does a flamingo festival look like? It looks like pink. Heaps and heaps of pink. There’s gonna be pink drinks, tropical treats, flamingo-themed décor, plus a bunch of limited-edition snacks from food trucks like Mr Burger, Senor Taco, GLACE (!!) and Pierogi Pierogi. If those guys actually create a flamingo Pierogi, 2018 might have peaked earlier than expected...

No word yet on whether any of the food specials will actually feature flamingo meat. The smart money is on ‘no’.
