BRADENTON – The warm weather is back and it's time to have some outdoor fun. Mainstreet Live! will rock a little longer tonight and the Marauders are home for seven straight beginning Friday. Sunday is your last chance for a master gardener tour at Robinson preserve. Put on your dancing shoes and grab your pruning shears. It's time for a Weekend Adventure in Bradenton!

Feel like dancing? The popular street party known as Main Street Live! is this Thursday with extended hours. Old Main Street will remain barricaded to vehicular traffic until midnight so the food trucks can stay a bit longer.

Old Main Street between Manatee and 3rd Avenue will close to vehicular traffic at 2:30 p.m. so please plan accordingly. Live music from the band Kettle of Fish starts around 6 p.m. Though the streets will be closed later, the live music will end at 10 p.m. as usual.


The Marauders kick off a seven-game home stand Friday night, when they play the first of three against the St Lucie Mets. On Monday, the Tampa Yankees come to town for a four-game series.

There are plenty of promotions this weekend to make your trip to the ballpark even more fun and affordable. Friday is Happy Hour Fridays presented by Pier 22 Restaurant. The first 500 hot dogs are free and drink specials by Kayem and Cheney Brothers will be on from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

For Saturday's game, it's Armed Forces Day presented by Miller High Life. There will be a Camo hat giveaway for fans, plus free admission to the game with a valid military ID.

Sunday is Wendy's Family Fun Sunday. Get out to the all new McKechnie Fields and enjoy $1 tickets and $1 hot dogs.


Sunday is the final Winter/Spring 2013 tour in the annual Master Gardener nature tours of the salt marshes at Robinson Preserve. The tour will begin at 9 a.m.

Learn about Florida's native plants with Master Gardener Sam on a stroll through this beautiful coastal property. The program is suitable for all ages. Please call the Master Gardener Office for reservations at 941-722-4524.
