Bands on the Beach

Bands on the Beach - August 4, 2009

Meet Kiera! Isn't she beautiful? She was having a great time with her mom at Bands on the Beach.

The crowd was gearing up early for a good time!

Lila Cox shows off her Island Times chair. How cool is that.

Buck Lee is taking his "Leave Only Your Footprints Please" campaign
to the next level. Recycling bins have now been placed around Casino Beach in which you can place your plastic bottles, cans and other recyclables.

Another strong proponent of recycling is Lila Cox. Like me, one of her environmental goals is to help eliminate plastic bottles! Lila is working on something special for the cause at our Taste of the Beach event in September. I'll keep you informed and maybe you'll even see me helping her out that weekend!

So look for these marked recycling bins next Tuesday night at Bands on the Beach, or any time you're in the Casino Beach area. We want to fill them up and maybe they will add even more around the core area!

It's the current Queen and King of Coma - Darlene and Don Richards!

Just a swingin'!

Allen Penniman is showing off his very special tee shirt! He and his wife, Janet, are very proud grandparents of Sarah Andrews, who won a gold medal for the United States in the Women's 5,000 meter race at the Pan American Junior Championships in Trinidad last week! Yea, Sarah!

Not Quite Fab was the featured band last night. The crowd truly enjoyed a trip back to the '60's and the music of the Beatles.

As you can see, we ended up with a perfect evening and almost a full moon on display.

Another big crowd.

And what a surprise, if you stayed 'til the end of the concert. The Not Quite Fab band was joined by McGuire's Pipe Band! What a lovely result.

A great way to end a lovely evening on Pensacola Beach.

They were a great band and I just loved the bagpipers. We left at 10 pm and they were still playing!!
