Welcome to the voyage of a lifetime. Prepare to set sail on the high seas of smooth for we present to you “Believe it or Yacht: An Evening of Yacht Rock.”

The Pinhook Creek Regatta will kick off the evening as our featured activity. Paper boat races are open to the public with prizes. Picnic, pet, and family friendly! Truck pools welcome! Kids 10 and under FREE!

This will be a live performance tribute to the incredibly smooth tunes of Hall & Oats, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Toto and so many more. Our first mate will set you adrift with the true sailor’s delight and the sweetest sax solos this side of the Bermuda Triangle. We encourage that all hands on deck dress in their starboard best tops and beach bottoms ready to drop anchor and gaze into the velvety sunset that is “Believe it or Yacht.”
