Drenched Fur celebrates 10th Year

from Gary Snyder

In early April, the city of Erie hosted the Exclusive Bear Weekend known as Drenched Fur. This was the tenth annual bear run that brought together over 250 men from around the tri-state region and across the nation from Florida, Texas, California, and Canada. The attendees enjoyed the various events that incorporated the pirates theme held primarily at the Clarion Lake Erie and Bel-Aire Conference Center.

On Friday night, attendees headed out to the Zone Dance Club for a night of music and fun while helping raise money for this year’s charity focus, the John Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation. This year’s event weekend also included food, winery and beer tours, pool socials, and a comedy roast.

The guys also turned out in force on Saturday night for the main event of the weekend, an exclusive night time private event at Splash Lagoon, our local indoor water park resort. Guests enjoyed hours of fun with all the water slides, wave pool, and new Aqua Tumbler to enjoy that night.

The Drenched Fur 10 Committee is creating a wonderful experience in hosting one of the biggest and long-standing event for Erie’s GLBTQA community. Many thanks to all the individuals and businesses that helped make the anniversary weekend such a success.
