Summer Fun: Pink Flamingo Tournament

Have you ever heard of the Pink Flamingo Charity Softball Tournament? It's an annual July favorite for our family. The festivities run from July 15th to July 17th at Legion Park in East De Pere. You can go cheer on teams while they play and eat some tasty food (for reasonable prices) at any time throughout the tournament. There are plenty of other fun things to do too...

Run a 5K on Saturday morning at 8:30am.

Our favorite is the parade that starts at 9am. It runs from DePere High School to Legion Park. You can literally fill bags or buckets with the candy that they throw. The teams are always VERY generous! If you have older kids or tweens who aren't that excited about parades anymore you can have them bring water guns. Some of the floats are moving water fights! We always try to create a dry zone and a wet zone so the little kids don't end up crying over soaked candy. :)

This year there will be a free concert featuring Big Mouth on Saturday at 7pm.
