Acworth, Ga. — One of the largest and most exciting action-sports events to ride into Georgia in 2008 is the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour. This annual event will feature the world’s top pro wakeboard stars performing rail tricks and aerial stunts, while maneuvering on the water at a speed of approximately 25 mph. All the high-flying, rail-sliding, board-crushing action is set to hit Acworth at Dallas Landing Park on May 16-18, 2008.
The MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour is a three-day carnival of water-sports action. But not all of the action takes place on the water. On land, fans will experience tons of great food and music; athlete autograph signings; chances to win free stuff; and shopping at the most cutting-edge stores for water-sports equipment including boats, wakeboards, wakeskates, sunglasses and the latest in wakeboarding and surfing fashions.
World Sports & Marketing and MasterCraft invite any active military personnel and their immediate family members to this exciting weekend-long event free of charge with proper military identification.
This is a family-oriented event and will provide a fun-filled day of sun, water and excitement for all who attend.
Parking will be available at the park May 16. Limited parking will be available at the park on May 17 and May 18. Shuttles will be provided from downtown Acworth. For more information on the event, contact the Acworth Parks and Recreation Department at 770-917-1234 or visit prowakeboardtour.com.
