Surf Festival Weekend

Posted by Dave Fratello on Friday, July 31st, 2009 at 8:16pm.

This weekend brings out some of the best, and craziest, of life in MB.

Here's hoping you take advantage of the International Surf Festival events. (Click for complete calendar.)

Among other things, we're happy to see the lifeguard competition back at the MB Pier. It's quite a show. The utter seriousness of the guards' work was on display last week during the high surf, with hundreds of rescues and one tragedy that inevitably colors this weekend's battles. This is a good time to show your support.

The 6-man volleyball tournament is its own thing, a serious sporting competition disguised as a hilarious romp – or maybe it's the other way around. Do be careful what the kids see.

We live at the beach, right? That's what this weekend celebrates.

Please vote in our poll to let us know your plans for the festival. Of course, you can select all of the options that apply. We'll close voting at 9pm Sunday night.

And use the comments here to describe your favorite, or least favorite, aspects of this year's events, or memories of years past.
