| Parrot Heads are the dedicated fans of Jimmy Buffett and his music. They get the name from their
clothing and attitudes, which tend to organizations that need help. There are more than 200 Parrot
Head clubs in 45 states and seven countries, with more than 23,000 members. These clubs are
registered as not-for-profit organizations under Parrot Heads in Paradise, Inc.
Who are the Lakes Area Parrot Heads?
We are the regional chapter of Parrot Heads in Paradise, Inc. As part of our charter, we are
required to do a minimum of four charity events every year. Based in Detroit Lakes, Minn., our
membership ranges from Minnesota’s lakes country (hence the name) into the Fargo-Moorhead
metro area, with other members scattered across North America. Our members come from all
walks of life and occupations, from business owners and secretaries, to disc jockeys and web
We meet monthly and have several other get-togethers and charity fundraisers throughout the
year. We attend concerts and generally enjoy having fun while we do our charity work.
