Long styled as a ‘Summer Camp for Parrotheads’, but without counselors and with plenty of alcohol, Riddles ‘campers’, relaxing in colorful tents decorated with parrots, pirates, sharks, and other emblems of Buffett culture, enjoy a two-day pool party by the Galveston seawall while being treated to entertainment by musicians from the burgeoning Texas Trop Rock music scene.
Donnie and the Dockrockers,
The Jonas Lorence Band,
The Lost Shaker of Salt Band

Since its founding in 1984 by Dick and Horacene Daugird at a Muscular Dystrophy fundraiser held at his insurance office in a building shaped like a lighthouse, the team has prepared meals for charity fundraisers, civic organizations and first responders at disaster sites. They now operate a fleet of 15 fully equipped cooking trailers enabling them to support several different events a week.
As Parrotheads we honor Jimmy Buffett's father by doing what we can to support the fight against Alzheimer's.
