“The fabulous music is part of a bigger day for singles and families alike,” says Bartlett Lake Marina owner Marie Church. “During the day-long festivities, visitors will enjoy the several bands, soloists and duos on a rockin’ mobile hydraulic shaded stage next to the restaurant that will shake guests in a positive way. In addition to the music, guests will enjoy great food specials at Bartlett’s new restaurant, The Last Stop/Bartlett Marina Grill, beach volleyball, a Frisbee golf course and an assortment of water and beach-related activities. Guests also will have the chance to learn how to wake surf with a pro trainer from Cactus Wake as well as the opportunity to try other water sports. And, we will transform the south cove near the beach into a resort-like setting so people can enjoy all of the excitement.”
Church says that while the event, hosted by Bartlett Lake Marina, is open to the public for free, the venue encourages people to donate to Rock the District at the event.
