Seeks Home-Built Boats for Display, Art/Craft Vendors, Acoustic Performers
Cortez, Fla. (July 21, 2014) – The Florida Maritime Museum is excited to present the second annual Boatyard Bash on Saturday, November 15 from 2-8pm. Activities will focus on the theme of sea monsters, in conjunction with the museum’s featured exhibit Maritime Mythologies: Creatures of the Deep.
Live performances on the main stage feature Ted Stevens and the Doo Shots, the Wire Beaters, and the Rose Island Band. Art, craft and food vendors will accompany fun family activities and a butterfly release to celebrate our new gardens. A screening of “Creature from the Black Lagoon” will take place in the field at 6pm, with live music and free popcorn.
