Catch These Incredible Peacocks Running Wild!

Throughout the city stand twenty-two peacocks, meticulously and ornately decorated as part of a fundraiser to rebuild the Kinderland playground in Forsyth Park. The fundraiser was kicked off by the Junior League of Kingston and hopes to raise $20,000 from the sale of the peacocks towards the $170,000 needed to build Kinderland II. The peacocks will be sold at a Breakfast Buffet and Auction to be held on October 26, at the Garden Plaza Hotel. Details are below.

Each peacock was made from a combination of polystyrene plastic and plywood and served as a tableau for local artists to really strut their stuff. The vivid colors, bold designs, and intricate detail all related to some very diverse themes for each peacock to represent. From Michelle Moore’s, Dr. Seuss-inspired “The Town Sneetch”, to Kristin Haber’s “Kingston City Hall Pride in Preservation” themed bird, each peacock is a great representation of each artist’s abilities.

Watch this short video to see the peacocks in all of their splendor. Better yet, view the peacocks in person while the  exhibit lasts!
