On January 16 and 17, The Paia Youth & Cultural Center held its annual winter Beachfest 2016. Beachfest is a boogie boarding competition for all ages. This two day event brings out the best in the community. Many Paia merchants show their support by donating food, time, and/or money. The judges are PYCC alumni. It is a fun two days for both competitors and onlookers. The Paia Town Association live streamed the event on Periscope, therefore, people around the WORLD saw the event in real time. Congratulations to all the winners. Here is some footage from the event.
