Coastal Connection

Produced by WFIT's General Manager, Terri Wright, Coastal Connection serves as your spotlight on the community. Each 5- min edition of Coastal Connection showcases a special event and/or not-for-profit organization in Brevard County, Florida.

Saturday March 11 6:00 PM This year’s Old Florida theme will take place on the charming South Tropical Trail property of 2007 alumni parents, Ed and Cheryl Scott. Mr. Scott is also a former Holy Trinity trustee. The evening will begin at twilight beneath the twinkling stars, mossy oaks and palm trees with the warm breeze off the Intracoastal Waterway. Sights, sounds and tastes from the Old Florida will warm your hearts along with the great cause that brings us all together.

Brevard County Parks and Recreation will host a cardboard boat regatta at Wickham Park on March 4th 9am to 2 pm.  Show your creative ingenuity by making a boat out of only cardboard and duct tape.  Two person teams will race for prizes and bragging rights.  There will even be awards for "Most Epic Sinking".  Family friendly fun!
