Two friends and I went to see Honfest in Baltimore yesterday.
|These gals look like best friends. Great outfits, Hons!|
Hon is short for Honey, what the waitresses call all the customers at the Cafe Hon, the restaurant with the giant pink flamingo above the restaurant.
|It's all in the attitude.|
This is a fun celebration to recognize the uniqueness of Baltimore, past and present, for its colloquialisms of speech and sense of style.
|Elvis after he went bald.|
There were about a dozen contestants vying for the title of Baltimore's Favorite Hon 2010.
|Don't you just love the rollers and the pearls?|
What a hoot!
|And the flamingos socks with sandals, couldn't be better!|
Although a beautiful day, the temperature was 90° and the humidity sapped your strength.
|This is Missy, holding the mike, the 98-year old Hon!|
The crowd was happy and cheerful and very supportive of all those who participated. There was even a 98-year old woman who climbed up on the stage and spoke. The crowd adored her.
|Is that a flamingo in your hair, Hon?|
|That's some big hair, Hon!|
|"Ah was born in Bawl'more, Hon!"|
|Love the pink beehive!|
|This is Miss Butts, with her huge hiney!|
|Gotta love the hair rollers!|
|Nice tattoo, Hon!|
|The bubble gum is the icing on the cake!|
|All the Hons on stage.|
|The Blond Beehive Hon!|
We finally left before we melted into the pavement, but it was well worth it. We plan to go again next year.
