The event starts early, and at 11am food gets going from Grunewald Fish Shack, Drake's, and Butch's Pizza Station, there will be plenty of drinks being served at the Red Dog Saloon, and they do encourage having a designated driver.

There will be live music from Tim Hart from 1pm to 5pm, Kid's games and a bounce house from 1pm to 2pm, Sand Volleyball all day long, and finally there will be a big concert in the evening with Captain Geech & The Shrimp Shack Shooters playing from 5pm to 9pm.
