AquaPalooza lands another music star

Sea Ray Boats announced today that country music star Brad Paisley will headline the AquaPalooza 2010 Signature Event, which is scheduled for July 10 at The Reserve at Lake Travis near Austin, Texas.

The event, hosted by Sea Ray and its local dealer Sail & Ski Center, will have Paisley performing in front of a crowd of thousands of concert-goers on boats, floats and kayaks.

"AquaPalooza has become synonymous with great music and great times on the water," said Rob Noyes, vice president of marketing for Sea Ray, in a statement. "We're very excited to have a performer of Brad Paisley's caliber headlining this year's signature event. This is a free event where your boat is your ticket; there will be no land access to the signature event."

For those who can't make it to Lake Travis, Sea Ray dealerships around the world will transform more than 100 additional locations into official AquaPalooza event sites, making it easy for boaters to get to and enjoy the family fun.

Most of the events will take place during the last two weekends in July.

In 2009, the fourth annual AquaPalooza attracted approximately 15,000 boats and 84,000 guests to 123 events.
