Some are wacky and some are tacky. Artists have turned plastic pink lawn flamingos into works of art you'll have to see to believe.
The annual summer display of "Flamingo Follies," hosted by the Quad City Botanical Center, is on display in July.
You can see the flamingos during regular hours (regular admission rates apply) at the Quad City Botanical Center, 2525 4th Avenue in Rock Island, during the month of July. You can also vote for your favorite flamingo while they're on display.
All of the flamingo creations will be sold in live and silent auctions at the Flamingo Fling, set for later in 2014.
