During May Cocoa Beach hosts the Offshore Boat Races. The entire weekend is full of events: A Kick-off Party on Thursday night in downtown Cocoa Beach, a block party in downtown Cocoa Beach during the day on Friday, and Races Saturday/Sunday. Cocoa Beach was littered with Power Boats! Most hotels had them in their parking lots. During the Parties the boats lined the streets of downtown Cocoa Beach.
During the Block Party the streets were lined with vendors selling Beer, art, food, T-shirts, and more. The VFW was open to all. Every Bar and food establishment was packed.
The following boat had one of the two engine compartments illuminated. Cool!
During the Block party, the boat teams and other groups had displays, handed out information and articles. We ran into three worthy groups that were against Human Trafficing. One new group for this area was Bikers Against Trafficking (BikersAgainstTrafficking.org). Check them out at the above address. Excellent group.
Races are on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday is Personal Watercraft and Power Boat Racing. Sunday is the main event. The offshore large boats race. The beachs were lined with fans.
A fun time. I am looking for next year!
