Battle of the Bands at the Spring Break Festival

The 5th Annual Gulf Beaches Rotary Spring Break Festival will be held in Treasure Island from March 19-22, 2015. This annual, family-oriented, 4 day event draws thousands of attendees each year. The venue includes rides, live entertainment, crafts and local food vendors.

On Thursday evening, March 19th, the Gulf Beaches Rotary Club will sponsor a “Battle of the Bands”. Bands representing local high schools and recently formed bands will compete on the professional stage to determine best performance. The winning band will return on Friday evening to open for the professional entertainment.

This is a terrific opportunity for young bands to showcase their talent and participate in a worthy cause for the community. The Gulf Beaches Rotary Club has been supporting the needs of our local community for over 60 years. This annual event has drawn over 10,000 participants during each 4-day period. The event is managed and operated by volunteers. All of the proceeds are deposited into the club’s foundation. Every dollar in the foundation is directed by the Board to help those in need including: St. Petersburg Free Clinic, Eckerd College Search and Rescue, Metropolitan Ministries, All Children’s Hospital, Guardian ad Litem, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Take Stock in Children Scholarships, Voices for Children and many other organizations.
