Celebrate South Sound Opening Activities at Des Moines Yacht Club May 9-10

Celebrate South Sound Opening Activities at the Des Moines Yacht Club on May 9-10, with a weekend full of live music, boat building for the kids, food vendors, tours of local boats and lots of marine oriented booths, displays and demonstrations.

A formal flag ceremony at 12 Noon complete with bagpipe, visiting dignitaries in dress uniform, and a blessing for the coming boating season. The public, free event is open from 11:00am to 4pm.

If dinner and dancing is more your style, Saturday evening features dinner in the ballroom beginning at 6pm. Music and dancing starts at 7:45pm. Cost is $25/person, $10 for children 6-12. BYOB.

Sunday morning follows up with a Mothers’ Day Breakfast—cost is $6/adult and $4/children under 12—served by some of the Past Commodores of the nearly-60-year-old club. Pancakes, eggs, ham, fruit, juice and coffee are served between 9am and noon. Once again, the public is invited. Bring Mom!
