Sunday Funday Boat Party Marathon July 8th

The only good thing about July 4th being in the middle of the week is that you may get the day off from work AND you have two weekends to celebrate our country’s independence.  With temperatures soaring into the 100′s, the “Sunday Funday” boat party marathon will be the only place to be cool- pun intended.  This is no average boat party: the best DJs in Austin, 8 party barges, 3 bands, provided transportation, and one helluva after-party. Also, don’t even THINK about worrying about transportation. They are providing charter buses to cart you around so your mobile needs are taken care of.

The party starts at check-in at 11am on the corner of 5th St and Colorado with More Cowbell, Vinyl Dharma, and Devin Baize.  Remember it’s a marathon, right?  That means you have to pace yourself and actually make it to the boat at 4pm.  Once on the boat (like Leo), there will be sponsored “refreshments”, entertainment (bikini contests) and some of Austin’s hottest DJs.

We’re still pacing ourselves, here…for the after-party, of course! Get your night cap on with VIP access into Haven on 5th and Colorado for Larkside, Toddy B, and DJ Dan.  If you think you can hang, grab your party flip-flops and get your online tickets now.  You can’t buy them at the door (it is a boat, after all)
