Sailboat race. Paddle and row race. Children’s treasure hunt. Food and beverage booths. Live music. Wood boat competition with trophy prizes.
You’ll encounter all this and plenty more fun when you attend the 14th Annual Wooden Boat Festival in Josephine, Alabama this weekend.
Two full days, both beginning at 10:00 a.m., bring backwater fun to the forefront for a mere $5 daily ticket or $8 two-day pass (children under 12 are free).
If you are into the music scene, you’re in for a great time. Saturday, April 30, at 11:00 a.m. is Big Daddy O and the Local Riff Raff. At 2:00 is the Lightnin’ Malcolm Band, followed by Moonshine Babies at 6:00. Sunday music includes Big Muddy at 10:00 a.m. and Rollin’ In the Hay at 2:00.
The weather forecast promises a gorgeous weekend, so come on out and enjoy the outdoors! You’ll find all the festivities around Pirates Cove just off the Intracoastal Canal (by water) at I.C.W. Marker #65 and L 30‘ 19.2 N Lo 87′ 32.0 W, or by land at the end of Co. Rd. 95 off of Co. Rd. 20, west of Foley.
