Pasco Paddlepalooza

Various locations throughout the Waterfront Bayou Business District, Pasco County, 727-842-1070,

FRIDAY-SUNDAY: You know why we tolerate all the madness that is this glorious state? Two words: Sunshine and water. Get your Florida on this weekend at Pasco Paddlepalooza.

No kayak or SUP? Come for the Landlubber Scavenger Hunt, live music, and general merriment.
