At the Toccalana Club, the World Series of Bocce is set to begin on Friday but the festivities kicked off Thursday with food and music.

More than 30-thousand dollars in prize money is up for grabs this weekend.

This year is the 45th year of the event.

The world series attracts more than 120 teams and thousands of spectators.

"This year we've got the biggest amount of teams ever. We have 111 men's in the open division and 40 something in the women's division. That's probably one of the biggest sporting events that you have to make a bracket for in the world."

The opening ceremony is set for 5 o'clock on Friday and is open to the public.
