By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

The Piñata has a deep historic meaning and actually dates back over 700 years to Asia-where they invented paper—when Marco Polo discovered them being used for celebrations with bright colors and elaborate decorations.

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

In addition to traditional beach volleyball, we can always count on something unique from an Outta Town Productions event, and this year Luis brings us Tri-Ball, the newest and most challenging twist on volleyball to come about in decades. One reason for the exploding growth of fast, furious and fun Tri-Ball across the nation is that it is a perfect tournament game.

Just imagine! Luis discovered Tri-Ball back in 2009, loved the fast play and saw immediately how it equalized the height advantage of traditional volleyball…
