It'll be hard to sit still with all that music going on.

The annual Harbor Sounds Music Festival at the Safety Harbor Marina gets under way tonight and continues Saturday from noon to 10 p.m.

"We're expecting the great weather to bring a lot of people out," said Joe Cooper, the city's special events supervisor. The harmonic happening is sponsored by the city of Safety Harbor and the Safety Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

The band lineup includes seven local groups, many from the Safety Harbor area. No Money Down (blues) and Father and Sons (jam rock) headline tonight and Saturday.

In addition to a full slate of music, there will be dozens of arts and crafts vendors and a children's play area with inflatables, a rock climbing wall, a clown and face painters.

The menu includes edibles from both land and sea. Fried fish, clam strips, shrimp, fish and chips, Greek fare, cake pops, pizza, hot dogs and more will be sold.

Joining Harbor Sounds this year is the H20 Lucky Duck Race to benefit the Safety Harbor Museum of Regional History.

Participants can adopt a numbered rubber duckie for $5 and win prizes or money two ways: Race it in Tampa Bay at 3 p.m. Saturday for a chance to win up to $1,000, or float it in a "pond" where lucky ducks will be "fished" for prizes hourly during the festival.

"It makes for a nice day," Cooper said. "It's free admission and parking. You can literally come with no money in your pocket and still have a great time."
