Throughout the event, guests will have the opportunity to view product demonstrations from more than 20 brands including Accurate Fishing, DOA Lures, Hook & Tackle, Shimano, and more. The family-friendly event will also include tasty samplings from grilling demonstrations, special retail offers, hourly giveaways and casting demonstrations.

In addition to the grilling samplings, the event will include a charitable lunch benefiting the Southwest Florida Muscular Dystrophy Association, offering the choice of a hotdog or hamburger with chips and a drink for $5 per person.
