Boats and Pirates in Manatee County
Boats and Pirates are coming soon to our area! Forget about heading to Tampa for the invasion of pirates there. We’ll have our own special fun right here in Manatee County.
The 4th Annual Bradenton Area River Regatta is back! The fun begins on February 3rd and features a new attraction with a spectacular view… a Gondola Ferris Wheel! The Ferris wheel is 100 ft high and will show off spectacular views of the Manatee River. The Ferris wheel will begin running at 10 am and will be situated on the Palmetto side of the river.
The boat racing begins at 10 am. In addition to racing, there will be music, dog stunt shows, the Pittsburgh Pirates/Bradenton Marauders Family Fun Zone, stunt men on jet skis, and fly boarders! The evening will end with a Zambelli Fireworks Spectacular choreographed to music! This adrenaline filled day promises to be an exciting family fun event!
Who’s ready for baseball? Come kick off the 2018 season with the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Bradenton Marauders at the 2018 Pittsburgh Pirates Pep Rally. For the fourth year in a row, on Old Main St and Manatee Ave there will be music, vendors, food, drinks, and team mascots to celebrate the start of spring training! The event takes place on Saturday, February 17 from 5 – 7:30pm.
