The big bonnets, big hair and big drag queens of the Armorettes delighted a big crowd with their outdoor celebration of camp drag on Sunday for the Easter Drag Races.

The annual party in the parking lot, hosted by the drag troupe outside Burkhart’s, offered its fill of Jell-O shots, musical chairs, Vienna sausages, trash bags and pantyhose stuffed with fruit.

The afternoon of drag delight raised funds to benefit the local HIV charities that the Armorettes support through their donations. View our photos from the 2012, 2011 and 2010 Easter Drag Races.
