From the moment the sun rises, anticipation energizes the air and electrifies the Manatee river as it awaits the fastest inland boats on water, Powerboat Superleague Racing...and the quickest, most nimble jets skis in the world—Hydro-Xross Racing... both spewing edge-of-the-seat excitement and breath-taking drama all day long.
Stages will be rockin’ too, headlined by Christian music sensation Brandon Heath and America’s #1 Beatles tribute band—Beatlemania Now. Plus, see extreme sports superstars XPOGO and BMX stunt rider Chris Clark along with the Frisbee® flying, trickdog antics of Sky Bound Canines, kids zone, a 5-K run and more food than your eyes can behold.
Of course, it all culminates when the skies come colorfully alive through the pyro artistry and magic of Zambelli Fireworks ending the day in a rousing blast of kaleidescopic beauty.
The all FREE, second annual Bradenton Area River Regatta, Saturday, Feb. 6. Be there!
