There will be flat-screen TVs playing all the weekend’s biggest rivalries in the beer garden.

The event features two days of water activities, including rides on the Seabreacher submersible and visits from the Super Petrel hydroplane. There will be boats and water toys displayed on the festival grounds.

The children's fishing clinic will be sponsored by Fish Florida, Hull’s Seafood, Nauti Pets, Innovative Bookkeeping and Florida Fish and Wildlife.
