Barge Party VIII will be held Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 5 and 6, at Two Pines Sandbar. This year the event will benefit the Matlacha Hookers.
The fun starts at noon on Saturday and continues until 6 pm. Festivities on Sunday will start at 11 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.
"This Barge Party marks the eighth time we held this event," Jim Frock, founder of the Barge Party said recently. "Every year it gets bigger and better."
Jim Frock of Sandbar Productions LLC is the founder of "Barge Party."
Scheduled to perform on Saturday are Sticky's Revenge and Deb and the Dynamics. Sunday's lineup features Michael Locke and the Repeat Offenders and Ellie Lee & Blues Fury.
Since this event is held in Matlacha Pass, where significant natural resources such as seagrass exist, organizers work hard to ensure that everyone is eco-friendly.
