You’re invited! Celebrate with us as we attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the“Longest line of garden flamingos”.
Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy marks the 150th year of Fredrick Law Olmsted’s revolutionary change to the Buffalo community with a fun and official attempt at the world’s longest #FLOmingos line.
Why Pink Flamingos?
The pink lawn piece which has been popularized by many landscape architecture programs and organizations as a tongue in cheek symbol, has also gained momentum across the country as a symbol of environmental stewardship.
How can YOU participate?
Come by Bidwell Parkway on June 21 at 10:30 a.m. to witness the official judging and announcement of the record and/or adopt one or more of the #FLOmingos to proudly display your support for your Olmsted Parks!
