WELCOME TO THE 2016 BEACH WATCH®

Clear Sailing Ahead

A nice weather week ahead, with mostly sunny skies and temps in the low to mid 80s. There is a chance of a pop of t-storm on Saturday, but for the most part it’s clear sailing ahead!!

It’s the perfect time to take it to the water. How about a Water Ski show. They’re still a thing, and there are two coming up on some of CT’s nicest inland waterways. The Bantam Lake Ski Club will be hosting their annual Ski Show on August 13th and 14th. They launch from Sandy Beach in Litchfield. Get all the details atbantamskiclub.com The Friends of Lake Pocotopaug are holding their Water Ski Show at Sears Park in East Hampton, CT. That event is on August 11th. Learn more

Are you more of the land lubber? Check out the Jerk Fest/ West Indian Parade this weekend on Columbus Blvd in Hartford. This free, family, friendly event will offer authentic Caribbean cuisine, island beverages, colorful costumes, live music performances, dance and more.

Get out and enjoy!
