Brookfield, CT – In just 48 short hours, the Northeast is going to explode with the biggest wakeboarding party that’s ever made its way up to this area! WICed Fest 2003 will kick off on the morning of Friday, June 20th and keep the good times rolling all the way through the afternoon of Sunday, June 22nd. As it has in years past, The Marina at Cottonwood Cove will be serving as a home base of sorts for the riders that will be tearing up the waters of Candlewood Lake.
For those of you who have been to the WICed Fest, you know that the WICed Fest is not only a celebration of wakeboarding, but a celebration of the wakeboarding lifestyle! Not only do we ride, but we throw a great party in the process. This year we will have bands, barbeques, sponsors with tents set up, parties, and other various forms of mayhem to keep our WICed Festers entertained when they are not out riding.
We’ll have six bands rocking our stage this year. Every year the music seems to get better and better and this year is no exception. The first band, Victor’s Army, goes on at 12 noon, so be sure to be there for them and be ready to rock through the rest of the afternoon! The band line up looks like this:
As always, we want to thank the bands who donate their musical talents to make our party rock! You guys are the best! We also need to give a big shout out to Smorgasbord Records who helped the WICed Fest by booking the bands, flyering for the event, and coordinating the music for the last four years.
Liquid Force Party at Down the Hatch
Liquid Force Wakeboards will be sponsoring a party at Down the Hatch, a restaurant/pub located directly on Candlewood Lake, on Friday night. Talk about easy access! Just pull your boat up and join the fun! Down the Hatch is accessible by land, but parking can be tricky sometimes, so come by boat if you can! You’ll have to be 21 to partake in the tasty libations for the evening, but for you underage WICed Festers, you’re more than welcome to come down and grab some grub! We’ll be doing some giveaways and raffles. The party atmosphere is worth the trip and you’ll be sure to catch up with those WICed Festers that you haven’t seen for a while!
Malibu Luau at The Marina
Saturday night will have a much more laid back, island feeling while we throw down at the Malibu Luau. The Marina will be turned into a full on party palace with the Tiki Hut serving up your favorite tropical drinks. Again, you must be 21 to drink, but we’ll be sure to have some virgin drinks for you youngins. The dock will have tiki torches running along them and we’ll have music blasting from about 8:00 – 10:00 PM. Again, they’ll be giveaways and a ton of fun at the Luau. This part of the weekend always seems to be one of the best, so don’t miss it!
How can you pass up on all this excitement? The WICed Fest will rock this year and you will want to be part of it!
