Water activities include raft-ups in the Interceptor Lagoon, poker runs, luncheon trips to various restaurants around Charlotte Harbor and beyond, overnight trips to resorts in Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys and the east coast of Florida and an annual Lighted Boat Parade in December. Land events include themed diner dance parties such as Sweetheart Dance, St. Patrick's Day, Oktoberfest, plus other events such as Lobster & Clam Bake, Tampa Bay Lightning games, Polo, golf tournaments, car shows, and much more.
