Volunteer District Director, Rudy Treml, sends us this picture of their event:
"The FairTax team from East Volusia County Florida set up a FairTax tent on a island event that occurs once per year in Ponce Inlet in Florida. The event is called Aquapalooza on Disappearing Island and is geared for the boaters and businesses that provide products for boaters.
At low tide, all event participates quickly boat out to the Island and setup tents for about a 8 hour time period. The event shuts down quickly when 3-4 foot of water or more moves in at high tide covering the Island."
