Q105 and Hooters present The Romantics in a FREE concert this coming Saturday.

Believe it or not, Hooters is turning 35 years old. The world-wide franchise has grown tremendously since the days of Ed Droste putting on a chicken costume, standing on Gulf to Bay Blvd. in Clearwater, waiving cars into his new eatery. And this weekend Q105 will help to celebrate the 35th. anniversary for the empire built on chicken wings with a massive beach party.

As part of the week-long festivities for Hooters, there will be a live concert featuring The Romantics near Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach Saturday night (9/29/18) with music starting at 7pm and a huge fireworks display after the concert Saturday night.

Of course there will be Hooters Girls a-plenty… including the 2018 Hooters Calendar Girls appearing at the Original Hooters location on Gulf to Bay Blvd., starting at 12 noon.

Win backstage Meet-And-Greet passes from Rich Fields all this week at 4:20pm on Q105.

Then, to cap off the entire weekend, it’s the Hooters Clearwater Super Boat National Championship on Sunday.

Remember, parking will be at a premium with such a large crowd expected, so get to the beach early on Saturday and stay for the concert later that night. Heck, book a hotel room and stay on the beach from Friday night… through the weekend.
