The past will come alive as the vintage and classic race boats of bygone eras return to Wooton Park in Tavares, Florida for our 10th annual Tavares Spring Thunder Regatta. Tavares is now a major stop on the Florida Vintage Race Boat Circuit with over 75 beautifully restored vintage and classic race boats running demonstration laps on a 1 mile oval course on beautiful Lake Dora. In addition to seeing and hearing these unique and beautiful boats run, spectators are invited to view them close-up in the pit area at Wooton Park on both Saturday and Sunday. We will be running large heats of all the APBA vintage classes, including outboards, classic glass, small hydros, mid-hydros, large hydros, flatbottoms, skiffs, speedsters, gold cuppers, and fire breathing grand prix hydros. The sights and sounds will be just magnificent and admission is free, so come join all the fun !!!

Designed for seniors with a "playful" attitude, the City of Tavares created the Young at Heart Program to offer our 55+ community a chance to gather around the table to enjoy classic board games, light refreshments, cards and old-fashion fellowship.
Held weekly on Tuesdays from 1:30pm - 3:30pm in the Tavares Civic Center (located behind the Tavares Public Library) during the months of October through April, the Young at Heart Program is open to anyone who wants to have a good time with lots of games, goodies and giggles at no charge.
