Jimmy Buffett concertless tailgate party #7


Saturday, September 24    #LE1111


The date is approaching and tickets are now on sale! You will not want to miss the atmosphere of a Buffett concert tailgate party at this early afternoon (2 p.m.) to evening party on a 15-acre “farm” in Durham County.

 The heart of the party is the Parrot God Challenge — a treasure hunt with a Buffett theme. Search for eight shrines, each with a treat and clues to help you find the next shrine, with the goal of reaching the Temple of the Parrot God. The shrines have a bit of theme park flare, with a touch of special effects, and are sure to delight and surprise all of your senses. The journey is along a three-quarter mile long trail with permanent landscaping. Just seeing the banana trees, palm trees, bamboo, hibiscus and other tropical plans growing in Durham will be worth it.

Provided: Buffett and Caribbean music, cheeseburgers (with you bringing a dish to share), soft drinks, blenders for YOUR libations, door prizes, and loads of fun as well as surprises along the Parrot God trail.

If you’ve been to the party before, you know it’s worth coming again. This is one event you don’t want to miss, and you don’t have to be a Buffett fan to enjoy it.

In the event of rain on Saturday, the event will be held Sunday, September 25, and will be held rain or shine. Also, $3.00 of the fee will be donated to the North Carolina Special Olympics winter ski program.
