After 21 Lazy Bear gatherings in Guerneville, it just gets better and better. Running from August 2nd through to the 7th, hundreds of bears and their admirers packed Guerneville. There were pool parties, wine tours, dances, bonfires and much more. My view of fourth street afforded me a ring side seat to the parade of men as they went from pool party to pool party. Its so refreshing to see men secure in their skin to sashay down the street in nothing more than a speedo. Lazy Bear does bring a wonderful variety of men together for camaraderie and fun.
The new organizers for this year’s Lazy Bear were, David Barker, John Jacob, Steve Adams, Fred Bothe and Trey Sheldon, plus a host of volunteers and they all did a great job. Thank you guys! Tags are on sale for 2018 and Lazy Bear runs from August 1 to 6 next year. Check out the Lazy Bear website.

The “estate” sold just a few weeks before Lazy Bear Weekend, so the organizers moved the Sunday Furry Sunday party to Johnson’s Beach this year. It was the second time that Johnson’s Beach had hosted a Lazy Bear event, but the Sunday party was the biggest event they had hosted. It went smoothly for the most part, but the beer ticket lines got to be really long later in the day and the umbrellas sold out, so finding shade was a challenge.
Ultra Naté was the headline performer and was very personable and posed with anyone wanting a selfie or who wanted to get a kiss from her. The singer, songwriter, record producer, DJ and promoter achieved success on the pop charts with songs such as “Free”, “If You Could Read My Mind” (as part of Stars on 54), and “Automatic”, all of which she performed for the enthusiastic crowd.
The photos from the day are available here. Until next year guys!
