Weekend Adventures in Bradenton: July 19-21, 2013


The Marauders are in the middle of a big home stand, giving you a chance to get out to the new stadium. The Manatee Players have a new movie program at their new facility AND it's Snooty's birthday, so you can go over to the South Florida Museum and get in on the party. Grab your glove, butter the popcorn and pick up a birthday card, it's time for a Weekend Adventure in Bradenton!

Snooty the Manatee

Join Snooty on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the South Florida Museum, Bishop Planetarium and Parker Manatee Aquarium. This annual event will celebrate Snooty's 65th birthday and promote the arts & wildlife awareness. 

The event held in the Spanish Plaza and in front of the museum on 10th Street West is FREE for all Snooty's friends and fans. (Reduced admission to the Museum, Planetarium & Aquarium are also available all day.)

The celebration will feature children's games and art activities; free cookies and drinks for the children, a display of Snooty's birthday cards submitted for the card contest; plus much, much more! 


The new Manatee Performing Arts Center is alive with a FREE, adult-only Music & Movies series this summer. Arrive at 6 p.m. and enjoy a lively cabaret with entertainment before the movie starts at 7. Food and libations are available for purchase.

This Sunday's film is Fried Green Tomatoes. A Housewife unhappy with her life befriends an old lady in a nursing home and is enthralled by the tales she tells of people she used to know. There will be a pre-film cabaret with the bluegrass band The Wirebeaters, starting at 6!


The Bradenton Marauders are back at McKechnie Field to take on the Clearwater Threshers (Philadelphia Phillies farm club) at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow.

This game kicks off an eight-game home stand with four games against the Threshers and another four against the Lakeland Flying Tigers (Detroit Tigers farm club). The Lakeland series starts Sunday.

All games begin at 6:30 p.m. except for 5 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m. July 24. Click here for promo and ticket info.
