FlockFest™ was started by founder Steven Crawford three years ago as small gathering of friends looking to do something fun and different. Today, that is still very much our purpose. On the Saturday of July 4th's holiday weekend we gather at Sebastian Beach in Fort Lauderdale, FL to do something fun and different! FlockFest™ is an informal gathering. There is no admission fee (the beach is free!) and other than observing the law and good decorum, there are no official rules. We do encourage you to be creative with your float! Last year we saw swans decorated with hats, beeds, tutus, and even eyelashes!
