There will be boat tours to take visitors out on the water to explore the honorees, the gentle giants, the manatees.

A beer and wine garden will host a live band as well as a big screen television so you won’t have to worry about missing that game!

The kids will also love coming out to see this huge event! They can enjoy the creative playground and join in on the great games and activities. For your adventurous children there will be a rock climbing wall, a bounce house and pony rides! What more could you ask for! Local students have been working hard on manatee posters that will be displayed in the Manatee Education area.
