3rd Annual Water Festival Returns November 1
SARASOTA — The Sarasota Bay Water Festival is set for Saturday, November 1 at Ken Thompson Park. The fun outdoor event celebrates the importance of Sarasota Bay to the region's environment, economy and quality of life. SBEP is the Founding Sponsor, HDR, Inc. is the Community Sponsor and Sea to Shore Alliance is the 2014 Host Sponsor. October 1 is the deadline for exhibitor applications and the event is expected to sell out.
Attendees can enjoy live music by local bands; refreshments via food trucks & local restaurants, as well as a beer and wine garden, an Art Zone featuring fine artists and photographers selling gift items, great raffle prizes, Dragon Boat Races, and a display of the winning photos from the I Love Sarasota Bay Photo Contest. Add your touch of creativity to our Community Art Mural and don’t forget the After Party at Circus City Architectural Salvage featuring live music, a DJ later in the evening and the “aqua-garde” fashion show contest. Party guests can wear their Halloween costumes, but only registered entries can be part of the fashion show design contest.
Speakers for the festival will be focused on bay-friendly living. You can meet Florida’s acclaimed nature photographer Clyde Butcher, see vintage and new boats, kids can enjoy a fishing clinic, dip netting and nature walks, plus exhibits and activities promoting boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, scuba diving, wildlife protection, and more.
