Indian River PWC Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for March 28, 2010.
16th March 2010. By Jeff Hemmel
Apparently the Easter Bunny doesn’t do that much hopping at all, but instead rides a Sea-Doo personal watercraft…or Kawasaki Jet Ski, Yamaha WaveRunner, or Honda AquaTrax, depending upon who’s supplying the eggs in his basket. At least, that’s the impression you get from this YouTube promo for the Florida Indian River Easter Egg Island Hop, scheduled for March 28, 2010 off the shores of Florida’s Space Coast.
The ride/hunt, sponsored by Route 1 Motorsports, invites both PWC enthusiasts and boaters to hip-hop the waters and visit five locations between Melbourne and Grant, Florida in search of prize-filled eggs. I touted the events last week, I know, but the commercial alone is worth a second mention.
Bet there were some curious looks when this crew showed up at the launch ramp…
