Memorial Day Events in Destin!May 25, 2016
It’s almost Memorial Day weekend and we imagine you will halt your search for real estate in Destin long enough to hit the beach and maybe enjoy a hamburger (or two). Use your down time wisely and also check out some of the area’s best annual events as we kick off summer!
Memorial Day is the unofficial kick off to the busy summer season along the beaches of Northwest Florida. From here on out, you will find the beaches crowded and the events around town hot! So, what is there to do during this holiday weekend?
Well, first, we recommend checking out HarborWalk Village, which is always a great destination for local events and things to do on the Emerald Coast. This weekend, don your best flip flops and head out for the Memorial Day Concert Celebration kicking off on Saturday at 7PM on the event stage. You’ll enjoy the sounds of Flash Flood, as well as an outstanding Journey cover band. On Sunday, don’t miss out on the annual fireworks over the harbor after your day on the beach.
A little further east at the Village of Baytowne Wharf, enjoy a full weekend of patriotic events as you watch live music from the main event stage each evening and the kids enjoy a wealth of activities just for them. On Sunday, stay late and watch the lagoon fireworks at 9:15PM, before heading back Monday for the Memorial Day program presented by the Sandestin Veteran’s at 7PM.
Want to watch your Memorial Day fireworks from a different vantage point? Climb aboard the Solaris! Departing the docks at Baytowne Marina at 6:30PM on Sunday, this three hour cruise around the bay offers you a delicious multi-course dinner and wonderful drinks before you find a spot along the rails of one of three decks to watch the fireworks from! No matter how you celebrate, we hope you have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend in Destin.
