This is the fifth annual event, but the first year on the beach. “The event has grown tremendously year after year and we are excited to have outgrown our local box. We asked ourselves where else better than to take it to our local beach?” – Tommie Belmont, CF Wild Co-Owner. The all-day festival will take over Singer Islands waterfront Ocean Avenue at Riviera Beach Municipal Park offering fitness goers, spectators and passerby’s a piece of the action in paradise. Spectators will be treated to incredible feats of athleticism, a vendor expo, not to mention iconic views of pristine waters and sandy beaches of South Florida. Heats will run until 5:10 p.m. and will be followed by a block party until 8 p.m.. This is a free, family friendly event open to the public.
