The Roar Offshore National Championship boat parade and block party drew a large crowd on Fort Myers Beach to watch powerboats cross the Matanzas Pass Bridge and park along Old San Carlos Boulevard.

The boats will be viewable again all day Friday at Salty Sam’s Marina and will be followed Saturday by races on the Gulf of Mexico to be viewable from along the northern end of Fort Myers Beach.

The championship will conclude Saturday with an awards ceremony at the Lani Kai Island Resort.
