Talent show at the Motor Home Park

Tonight at Lee’s Travel Park here in sunny Largo Florida, they had a talent show of all the Campers.

I thought I would share some of the pictures. It was a fun time for all involved. The guys dressed up as ladies and they selected the “Miss Lee’s” for 2011.

The evening started out with a group of ladies performing several Hawaiian hula’s dances, then on to the Miss Lee selection, and then of course the talent show. You never know what activities you will find at a Motor Home Park! lol! 🙂 I took the pictures with my cell phone…would have been better with a real camera, but oh well! The guy’s that dressed up as ladies for the “Miss Lee’s” award really seemed to be in their element. I’m thinking some of them may do this quite often? 😛 They were way to much into it! 😛 Click on each thumbnail to see a larger picture.
