On March 29th-31st, 2013 the 49th Easter Surfing Festival will be staged at the Landmark Cocoa Beach Pier. Shepard Park will be utilized primarily as a parking destination to accommodate event overflow parking.
There will be a designated off load-turn around area established at the pier, for spectators to offload their personal beach items. Organizers are suggesting that you offload your beach gear, leave it attended while someone drives the auto to Shepard for parking.
Spectators then can either walk back on Ocean Beach Boulevard, or walk across the street to the S.C.A.T.S stop and catch the North bound bus for $1.25 to get off on Winslow Street which places them one block due West of the Pier- Stops will be designated by signage.
