That was a lot of rain, huh?
Who would have believed Lake Allatoona would be too full to host the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour event for this weekend, but that’s the deal.
The whole shebang (yes, that’s a real word) is flowing over to Lake Acworth Beach at Acworth, GA’s Cauble Park.
Most of us do not wakeboard … because most of us are not out of our minds.
Most of us, however, love trainwrecks, NASCAR crashes, seeing people beat up in MMA fights and watching dudes and dudettes wipe out on local lakes.
Yes, this is American entertainment. We are a sick people, but we know how to have a good time, huh?
Survivors of the wakeboard event are invited to a dandy Block Party to be held in Historic Downtown Acworth. There will be award presentations from the Pro Tour event, live music, outdoor dining opportunities and lots of amped grommets in gnarly doggers!
The Block Party will run from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Parking will be available in Historic Downtown Acworth and shuttles will be running from various locations to bring visitors down to the park.
Lake Acworth will not be able to accommodate public access to the water by way of boat.
(No, I’m not sure what that means either. Sorry. I copied it from their website.)
All of the loyal spectators who planned to line the course on Lake Allatoona can join the crowd on land to enjoy:
tons of great food
athlete autograph signings
chances to win free stuff and
shopping at cutting-edge stores for water-sports equipment including boats, wakeboards, wakeskates, sunglasses and the latest in wakeboarding and surfing fashions.
It Ain’t Cheap
$13.00 for ages 13 and older
$5 for ages six to twelve and
kids five and under are admitted free.
No, they won’t check your toddler’s ID, but if your kids say, “Wassup, dude,” they probably won’t pass for five.
