A highlight of the Texas International Fishing Tournament is the annual Playday. During Playday games and activities set the backdrop for the fundamental value of TIFT: family togetherness.
The 2021 Playday is set to be a celebration of both family and TIFT – and it is long overdue. “With 2020 behind us, we can now celebrate the future of our tournament; the children”; says Kaston Fultz who chairs the event with his wife Meghan. The Fultz family is no stranger to Playday, Kaston continues “I started attending TIFT in 1989 – from Charlie’s to the South Padre Island Convention Center! I now look forward to bringing my four girls to come and play!”.
Playday will have some out of this world activities, thanks to our 81st Playday sponsor, SpaceX. In addition, the ever-popular activities like the big inflatable slide, mullet relay, and reel-the-fish are on hand, in addition to incorporating new, and exciting experiences for Playday participants.
“Playday is a staple summertime finale” Kaston shares. The activities can be experienced by age group: Under 5;5-6;7-9, and 10-12. Winners of each competitive event will receive a medal during the Playday awards ceremony.
Playday takes place 10:00 a.m. Thursday, July 29 at the South Padre Island Convention Centre. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The Playday awards ceremony takes place at noon. Playday is free and open to the public. All children and their parents are welcome!
