AquaPalooza 2013: Saturday July 20th at Tim’s 2 Fairview Beach

Posted by Lou on July 15, 2013 in Aquapalooza, Boating News, Meetups, Potomac River, Special Events

Huzzah! Aquapalooza 2013, the world’s largest boating event, will once again have an outpost in Washington DC. The floating party is sponsored by the Prince William Marina. This year the merry mayhem will take place on the Potomac River at Tim’s 2 Restaurant and Crabhouse on Saturday July 20th.

The festivities will take place from noon until dark, with a great fireworks display once the sun goes down. Bands will be rocking all day on the central floating stage.

By water, just pull on up! All of the fun is on the water, so bring your beach towels, sunscreen, water and snacks! Get ready to listen to some country music. RSVP on Facebook.

By road, access will be VERY limited. To reinforce the “boating-only” nature of AquaPalooza, here is a special message from Prince William Marine:

The small town of Fairview Beach cannot accommodate the road traffic that this event has brought in the past. There will be limited restaurant parking and any person parking on the side streets throughout the community will be towed at the owner’s expense. Boaters be sure to load up your passengers and items from your dock before you leave. Coolers, backpacks, chairs and other beach type bags as well as any food/beverages of any type will not be permitted on or thru the restaurant. You will not be able to get to a shuttle boat with any of those items. Tim’s II does sell alcoholic beverages to go. ABC regulations will be strictly enforced.

There will be a Pre-Palooza party at The Electric Palm at Prince William Marina on Thursday night July 18th. 95.9 WGRQ will be broadcasting live from 5pm to 7pm.

Have fun, be safe, see you at Aquapalooza 2013!
