What A Weekend!

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

We had an action-packed weekend here at the Lake, with not one, but two open parties hosted at Sunset Cove! We’re ratcheting it up a gear in preparation for the summer season, and we simply can’t wait to get it all going!

Full Moon Party

On Friday, the first Full Moon Party of the year quite literally went off with a bang as our fireworks extravaganza delighted the crowd in and around Sunset Cove. It was a crazy fun event with our Man of the Moon, Sonic, representing Power 96.1, a stilt-walking clown juggling light-up bowling pins, a 16-foot tall puppet giving out really high fives, and a fire breather dancing to the mad beats laid down by the DJ! The Sunset Cove docks were full up, and a dozen or so boats were anchored offshore for a prime view of the fireworks. Even before the sun went down, guests played several games of volleyball and enjoyed the sun setting

Mark your calendars for next month’s Full Moon Party at Sunset Cove, Sunday, May 26th.

 

Squeeze the Clown

Jimmy Pyro and awesome party-goer

This guy had to dance RIGHT NOW.

And we mean RIGHT NOW!

Music, Beach & Brew Fest

These crazy guys were trying a sip of Sweetwater.

Saturday came and with it hundreds of guests clamoring for a taste, or rather, many tastes of a variety of craft beers from all over the United States. Vendors from Sweetwater, Ace, Aguita, Founders, Mad River, Victory, Lagunitas, Saw Tooth, Dale’s, Jack Daniel’s, Jailhouse, and so many more showed up and set up shop around Sunset Cove to water the thirsty crowd. We saw a forecast of rain, but it held off until the later evening, and it really ended up being a nice day, although a bit cool. There were live performances all day on our new stage by the OCD Band, Celebrity DJ Gary Braner and SMACK. We’ll definitely be doing this one again, so keep an eye out for next year’s Music, Beach, and Brew Fest!
