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!
Amazon is a great place to buy floats. Just search for "pool floats” online or the Amazon app (if you're super lazy, just click here). Other online stores sell floats at great prices as well, just Google pool floats and you’ll get a ton of options.
You can also buy your inflatable locally. Leslie’s Pool on Federal Highway sells them. Target carries a few as well.

Directions - like you've never been there before! :-)
PLEASE, drink responsibly, clean after yourselves, and be careful with your floats in the water.
Most importantly, have fun!
OH EM GEE! You guys got so creative last year! I saw swans with beads, swans with sombreros, black swans and a swan with huge eyelashes named Latisse. I saw gold swans, pink flamingos, and even rubber duckies!
FlockFest has no official theme. So, feel free to get creative and decorate your float any way you want.
I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with this year!
