It's All Wet !

The first day of summer doesn't officially come until June 20, but Tybee Island residents launch the summer beach season this Friday with the 21st annual Beach Bum Parade.
The biggest water fight east of the Mississippi kicks off at 6pm and if you are on the island you are fair game for a good hosing.
An unsuspecting tourist once cruising in his open top Corvette was severely douched while waiting at Chus stop light.
It is a douse fest that starts near the Tybee Island Lighthouse and ends at the 18th Street parking lot at the Pier and Pavilion. Spectators, lined up along the parade route on Butler Avenue, are armed with buckets, squirt guns and hoses.
Music and beer to follow.
