Just Play Sports Fest Comes to Sarasota in October
Sep 03, 2013 08:03PM
A multi-age, multi-venue, multi-sporting event is on tap throughout Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch October 26 and 27, 2013. The festival, produced by Just Play Sports, will feature six adult sports – soccer, golf, basketball, a 5K race, flag football and softball. Three youth sports are basketball, soccer and flag football.
Because the venues are spread throughout the area, a centralized tailgate party is scheduled with local vendors, food, live music and more, to bring the participants together.
Organizer Todd Kerick explained that the Just Play Sports Fest was started in 2013 as a division of Indoor Sports LLC. “With sports becoming more and more serious, we wanted to create a multi-sport event that allowed athletes of various ages and abilities an opportunity to get away and Just Play for the fun of playing (hence the name). By combining some friendly competition with a variety of fun festival activities including our signature Backyard Tailgate Party, participants can get away and enjoy a fun weekend without the stress.”
The event supports the V Foundation for Cancer Research, an organization very familiar to residents of Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton.
Natural Awakenings is proud to be a sponsor of this event. Look for more information in our October issue.
