So Local Pasco. January 14th, 2016…Pasco Waterfest Edition

Today, we are going to hear about a NEW event, the Pasco Waterfest, as we check in with new friend, and fellow Jack Harris fan Kristin Perrott Tonkin…Kristin is part of the Bayou Business Association (I called them the Bayou Business GROUP in the podcast), and she operates the Sunset Landing Marina on the Pithlachascotee River, in New Port Richey.

Kristin is here to tell us about a brand NEW event, coming in February, the Pasco WaterFest, taking place along the Cotee River in late February.  This is an exciting followup event, by the same group that brought you Paddlepalooza, last year (and YES, that event returns this year, as well!)

The Pasco WaterFest includes events spread over three days, including a charity fishing tournament, meet and greets with Lightning and Storm alumni,  a poker run, BBQ, and lots more!

There will be an attempt to break a world record for the biggest ‘raft up’ ever attempted…When boats tie up together, usually for parties.  The attempt will require over SIXTEEN HUNDRED watercraft, so get involved NOW, and find out how you can be a part of history!

Find out how YOU can get involved with a world record attempt, right here in West Pasco County

A quick word about the weather, related to the Tuesday So Local Pasco podcast:  We can expect some potentially severe weather on Friday morning, through about mid-day.  There is still some uncertainty about HOW severe, but keep an eye on local weather forecasts and warnings…Remember, not ALL of our bad weather happens during hurricane season!
