Drenched Fur 9 Sets Record Attendance
by Gary Snyder
During the first weekend of April, the Erie community hosted once again to Erie's Exclusive Bear Weekend known as Drenched Fur. This time the ‘Best Little Run for Fun' brought together a record 250+ men from around the tri-state area and as far away as Chicago, Houston, DC, and Toronto. Erie has been hosting Drenched Fur for nine years allowing men to appreciate themselves and each other in their natural masculinity.
The main event for Drenched Fur is an exclusive night time private event at Splash Lagoon, our local indoor water park resort. In addition to enjoying the fun wet times there, the weekend this year also included Bear-e-oke, BEAR Bingo, a winery tour to North East, PA and this year's newest game show spoof, The Hollybear Squares.
On Friday night, the guys also took over The Zone Dance Club for a Military Themed bar outing to help support NWPAPA, our local Northwest Pennsylvania Pride Alliance organization, by selling paper dog tags for one dollar each. The Zone will be posting/taking donations for them through the month of April allowing you to help donate for this worthy group as well.
The Drenched Fur 9 Committee did a fantastic job hosting one of the biggest events for Erie's GLBTQA community and thanks all the individuals and businesses that helped make this year a success.
