White Shark Party

In Events by Hugh Freund

The White Shark Party – October 7th

Join Cisco Brewers, OCEARCH, and Courageous for an afternoon and evening of sharks, sailing, and craft beer!

Cisco will serve a selection of their signature beers from a huge inflatable bar at the end of Pier 4. The Aldous Collins Band will be playing under the PEAK Events tent, adding some funk and soul to the party.

The M/V OCEARCH will be docked alongside Pier 4 during a layover between research expeditions. Members of the OCEARCH team will be onhand to give tours and answer questions about sharks, marine research, the vessel, and their K-8 STEM curriculum.

Proceeds from The White Shark Party will benefit both Courageous Sailing and OCEARCH.
