I have a standing offer to buy a beer for any MDS member who comes down and meets up with me on TI Day 10-3ish; even if to say hi and give them a beer.
I wrote a bit about TI Day in some post but IDK which one. In short; it's not a huge event but it's spread out, family oriented, music, food, arts & crafts, auction, flea market, not expensive to enter. Very unique festival reflective of the shore; I've been to a few festivals around the US in CA, ID, CO, and this one is unique.
Spend the Weekend or night in TI or SM or one of the vacation rentals in the area.
I'll set up post in a few weeks with some insider bits that may help those coming down. Maybe a pole if I don't get the pole hammer first!
Here is a NYT article about boat rodeo. TI's more plebian.
