CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Thousands of Parrot Heads partied with Jimmy Buffett Tuesday night.  The singer made his 42nd appearance in town before a sold-out crowd.

From burgers and brats on the grill, to a few cool beverages, the Parrot Head experience can really be a blur for some people.

"Drinking Nati' in the Nati' baby!" yelled one man proudly holding his Natural Light beer in-hand.

"Be friendly, that is the key," said Denny the Flamingo Man. "Everyone here is just here to have a good time and party it's that simple."

"It's always fun, this is the biggest holiday of the year," he added.

From pink flamingoes to giant beach balls, grass skirts, this is a party like no other.

Some people are just not meant to limbo, until we met Denise Mirda from Shelbyville, KY.

"Well, you know, I'm not quite sure I just kind of go with it," said Mirda.

"Well, I've been going for about 20 years and every year I add something to it it's all homemade," said a man pointing to his hat, which was filled with all sorts of Buffet icons and memorabilia.

"I got a bunch of leis a bunch of parrot beads, dolphin beads my cheeseburger in paradise," another man said, proudly pointing to all of the baubles around his neck.

"Sometimes, it's like Mardi Gras and the drunker the people get, it gets a lot more like Mardi Gras!" he laughed crazily.

"It's all about having fun, it's all about celebrating the life we've got and having a great time with friends," said Bill Kimball of Batavia.
