Live music all night long.

The burning boat is spectacular and keeps everyone warm.

This was a 40' sport fisherman.


Huge clouds of smoke filled the air.

Good food from the truck, and trinkets for sale under the gazebo.

  1. We, (The band TRIBUTE) had a great time at this event. The heat that was given off by that boat was astounding. It’s events like these that make it so important to support a place like LIMM. Hopefully we will play it again next year. We would love to hear from people that attended. Leave a comment in our guestbook at Thanks, your support is greatly appreciated.
