KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The date of the AquaPalooza 2010 Signature Event has been changed to July 10 to accommodate the schedule of a major musical act, which will be announced in the near future, Sea Ray Boats reported in a recent statement.
“AquaPalooza has become synonymous with great music, thanks to the past involvement of artists like Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Soul Asylum, Everclear and Cracker,” said Rob Noyes, vice president of marketing for Sea Ray. “By shifting the date of our Signature Event forward three weeks, we move closer to signing another big-name performer for 2010. Hopefully, we’ll be revealing the big news in a few more weeks.”
This year’s Signature Event will take place on Lake Travis, a short drive from both Austin and San Antonio, Texas, and will be hosted by Sail & Ski, which has locations in Austin, Lakeway and San Antonio, and was recently ranked the No. 1 dealer in North America by Boating Industry magazine.
The 19,000-acre Lake Travis offers 250 miles of shoreline, 15 marinas and 11 public boat ramps, as well as numerous powerboat, houseboat and PWC rental facilities. The Signature Event will be held at The Reserve at Lake Travis, a new waterfront resort between the Pace Bend and Point Venture areas of the lake. It will be a free event in which the only access will be via a boat in the water.
In addition to the Signature Event, Sea Ray dealerships around the world will transform more than 100 additional locations into official AquaPalooza event sites, according to Sea Ray. Most of the events will take place during the last two weekends in July.
In 2009, the fourth annual AquaPalooza attracted approximately 15,000 boats and 84,000 guests to 123 events from New York to California, and from Austria to Australia. Since its inception in 2006, the multi-location celebration has grown bigger each year. For more information, visit www.aquapalooza.com.
