171. Bocce Blast

The community in Syracuse is thriving, and with word getting out about really fun and awesome events and activities for people of all ages, more and more really cool things keep happening.

Bocce Ball is starting to take a huge leap forward here in the community. It’s a great way to meet new people, have some fun during the week and learn a new sport!

The Bocce Blast this weekend is just that!


The folks over at NOexcuses & SyracuseGuru have teamed up with the folks over at Turbo Bocce and local food truck vendors to put on a really fun event! The Bocce Blast. It’s combining the sport of bocce with the burgeoning food truck industry here in Syracuse.

When I lived in Austin, food trucks were everywhere. You could grab a gourmet hotdog on your lunch break, you could pick up a burrito at my favorite bar in the world, gourmet donuts…you name it, they had it. The trucks were parked all over the city, they were a mainstay for locals and an attraction for tourists. It’s REALLY exciting to see more popping up here in Syracuse.

Saturday from 6-10pm, partake in the 1st annual Bocce Blast. They’ll have people there from the Turbo Bocce league if you want to sign up for the season, they’ll have local food trucks, beverages, and more!

Tip: Grab a partner and buy your tickets! Tickets are $15, well worth it! Buy yours here!

136. Bocce Ball

In addition to Kickball, Syracuse is doing a great job of trying to get young-professionals/adults to compete in friendly sports. Last year, I noticed groups of people congregating on the lawn across from Nibsy’s every Tuesday and I had no idea what they were doing.

They looked like they were having a lot of fun though.

The sign-up’s for this year’s Bocce Ball league are still ongoing, You can essentially join at any point during the summer but the league starts on May 28th. It’s $50 for teams of 2, which pays for your registration, t-shirt, cash prizes and more! This year, they will be moving from the lawn across from Nibsy’s to Onondaga Lake Park near the Salt Museum. This is for the added convenience of more space to play, more parking and opportunities for more teams! More more more!

The rules for signing up are simple. Email paul@turbobocce.com. From there, he’ll tell you what’s up.

If you’re interested in spectating, which from what I’ve seen it’s hilarious….they’ll be offering a $5 all you can eat/drink option during games.  This is a great opportunity to get out and meet new people, have fun with old friends and have an all-around really great time. It mixes up the week a little with it being on Tuesday too!

Tip: Interested but not sure if you’re really interested? Check out the open practice May 21st at Onondaga Lake Park
