BEAVER QUEEN PAGEANT KICK-OFF PARTY

The twelfth-annual Beaver Queen Pageant would seem the perfect counterargument to the current image of North Carolina as an intolerant place. Centered around a beauty competition wherein participants must dress as drag beavers—and if they hope to win, they'd better have a functioning tail—this proudly weird June throwdown celebrates inclusiveness while providing essential support to Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association, a group dedicated to the preservation of urban wetlands and restoration of the local habitat. Providing a small slice of what's to come in roughly six weeks, this family-friendly "Tails & Tiaras"-themed shindig is devoted to rug cutting and favor currying (if you're one of the aspiring Beaver Queens on hand to schmooze the judges). Proud of its completely rigged voting system (bribery is encouraged), the pageant kicks off with the ebullient party sounds of the Bulltown Strutters, united in a communal spirit of "Peace, love, and beaver." —David Klein
