Boomsday 2014 was bigger than ever! At the request of Visit Knoxville, the KokOasis was commissioned to serve as the water stage for 5 outstanding musical acts and one helluva flyboard show performed by Ben Merrell, including his huge signature back dolphin with highly technical trick combos. We were honored to also host, Laurel Wright, an East Tennessee local making it big on American Idol. The weather threatened to cancel the huge fireworks display, but excellent adjustments by the decision-makers allowed the event to start early enough to finish before the downpour.
It was great to have so many family members and friends aboard, including Mayor Madeline Rogero along with seven of her grandchildren to enjoy the show. The icing on the event filled weekend was the exciting victory achieved by the VOLS on Sunday against the Utah State Aggies, winning by more than a comfortable margin.
