It was a walloping great day to be on the beach! There were all kinds of things going on!
The Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring 'Taste of the Beach'. It's a two-day event which kicked off today and showcases signature dishes from the best restaurants on the beach. Here's your chance to try a bit of everything.
Some mighty fine food and a great selection.
Folks who lined up couldn't have asked for a more pleasant day on Pensacola Beach with their family and friends. Those attending 'Life's a Vette at the Beach' were pretty happy to see all the best beach restaurants lined up and waiting for them, too.
Stop by and get a tee shirt - I think we're starting a new tradition!
Then work your way around to all the tents. Paradise Bar & Grill was serving up Rene's signature shrimp salad and honey-wasabi grilled fish sandwiches.
Yummm.... have you tried the homemade brownies or the walnut-crust key lime pie from Native Cafe?
Sidelines Sports Bar & Restaurant had grouper nuggets and fried shrimp.
Beach-style shrimp from H2O.
Yo! It's the balloon man!
Dancingly Yours dancers enjoyed their balloon animals after a performance.
Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce sponsored events include activities for kids. We love kids out here on the island, probably because we're all kids at heart ourselves. This young fella is determined to get an apple in the bobbing contest...
And there was pumpkin decorating, and sack races, and sand art in a bottle!
You still have one more day to come out for a 'Taste of the Beach'! You'll probably see me tomorrow, chowing down on pizza from the Florida Pizza Kitchen or brownies from Native Cafe, but for sure you will see me selling beverages at the Chamber Tent from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. Come out and say hello!
