The first of the Amelia Island Sunsplash events is happening this weekend. This looks like it is going to be a popular event with something for everyone. The first Sunsplash is this coming Saturday, June 5th, down on the beach at Sadler Road near Sliders Seaside Restaurant.

Sunsplash starts off with a Beach Cleanup at 7AM and with the surfing competition starting at 8AM. At 11 they have the Kid’s Sandcastle Contest and Beach Volleyball signups. They will have a Slip-N-Slide, beach ping pong and, of course, the Fernandina Beach Pirates Club will be there. At 2PM there is a Swimwear Fashion Show sponsored by Pipeline Surf Shop.
The highlight for me though will be the live reggae music that will be playing all afternoon. At 1PM Spirit Dub Government will be playing followed by Jah-Creation at 4PM. I get up fairly early in the mornings and can’t stay up as late as I used to so I really do like afternoon music sessions.
There are 4 Sunsplashes scheduled for this year: July 3rd, August 7th and September 4th. Come to our island, grab a Red Stripe and listen to some live reggae on the beach. It will be just like going to that other island but without the really long plane ride.
