Attendees will once again be able to join in the fun by land or water – catch FREE shuttle rides from the Leonardtown Trolley provided by Patuxent Transportation (courtesy of the Town of Leonardtown) from around Town to the Wharf or pull up to the Town’s slips and enjoy the music with friends right from your boat.

The event is also an early celebration for Cinco De Mayo. This award-winning ensemble performs a wide variety of original compositions and arrangements from traditional Salsa music to Salsa Jazz.
