Beyond sports, the festival offers a range of activities for all ages, including live music, cultural dance performances, and an Ocean Brews + Bites Garden featuring local snacks and drinks. Attendees can also enjoy interactive activities like a Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course and a roller skating rink, as well as brand samplings from Evolve Protein Shake, Celsius, Best Day Brewing, Hot Dog on a Stick, and more.
