ANNA MARIA It was a perfect day for a picnic
at the beach, and thats what a group of kids
and their parents did last Saturday as they joined
the Anna Maria Island Privateers at Bayfront Park
for Snooks Adams Kids Day.
Their ranks were cut this year by the skateboard competition
in Holmes Beach, but the youngsters who showed up
in Anna Maria had a lot of fun.
This year, the Island Dojos, a martial arts class
headed by Kevin Bergquist, joined the fun and gave
a Pre-Teen Ninja Pirates demonstration on the beach.
Following that, everyone headed into the pavilion
for hot dogs, chips and sodas donated by the Privateers
plus pizza donated by Dominos.
Ryan Joseph and his mother, Kelly, of Holmes Beach,
pose for the camera. Ryan was the youngest pirate
costume contest winner.
