(Corpus Christi) - There were flamingos just about everywhere you looked at the Botanical Gardens this afternoon but they weren't real ones. Flamingo Fandago is an event where local artists of all ages come out and decorate plastic flamingos. Organizers hope the celebration will get people involved in the community. The executive director says more than 60 artists came out and decorated dozens of different birds. This is the event's seventh year and the event will continue through the end of July.
