What the flock?
Did you know the pink flamingo was created in Massachusetts? Bright pink birds are popping up in Seaport. The original pink flamingo, named Diego, was designed in 1957 by Don Featherstone who was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize for Art in 1996 for this favorite symbol of American kitsch. An unexpected native, Diego has always been produced in Massachusetts, first in Leominister by Union Products and now in Fitchburg by Cado Manufacturing. Diego and friends are making their way around the state to brighten the final days of winter and remind us that warmer days are just ahead. Post a photo with the pop-culture icon and #whattheflock and tag @seaportbos to help track Diego’s migration on Instagram.
Find the flock on Seaport Common from March 22nd through March 30th.
