Flamingo Races at Kings Gate
The Flamingo Races started at Kings Gate about 12 or so years ago and have grown into an annual tradition that residents of the Port Charlotte community love! The event, which started with about 30 to 40 people attending, is hosted in the ballroom and sees over 180 people attend regularly. This year we had to close the event tickets sales after selling 303 tickets! A $1.00 entrance fee grants residents the chance to bet on their favorite flamingo, then dice are rolled and the flamingos race to the finish.
A very special thank you to Dave and Elaine Pragnell, Ron and Del Griffin and to all who were involved in the planning and executing of the Flamingo Races! This is by far one Kings Gate’s best attended events!
