As the old Three Dog Night song says, “Celebrate! Celebrate!” There’s plenty to celebrate this weekend and beyond for Flagler County Tourism Partners!
First and foremost, the Fourth of July weekend is FABULOUS in our area, with celebrations and fireworks everywhere you look. The City of Flagler Beach presents its “Fabulous 4th Festival” July 4-6 with a 5K Run/Walk, food and craft vendors, Kid’s Zone, parade, music, watermelon and of course, fireworks off the pier when it gets dark. The next day (First Friday) and Saturday, add the Farmer’s Market to the mix and more music, food and fun. There’s even a Corn Hole Tournament! Find out more at www.palmcoastandtheflaglerbeaches.com or on the city’s beautiful new web site www.cityofflaglerbeach.com
If that wasn’t enough, the City of Palm Coast will kick off its Independence Day events with the “By the Dawn’s Early Light” commemoration at 8 a.m. Thursday at Heroes Memorial Park, 2860 Palm Coast Parkway. From 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., residents can cool off with “Pack the Pool Patriotic Day” at the city’s Frieda Zamba Swimming Pool. Those wearing red, white and blue get in for $1. In addition to the fireworks Thursday night in Flagler Beach, Palm Coast will light up the sky at 9 p.m. Friday in Central Park at Town Center. Festivities start at 4 pm with musical entertainment and other fun activities for the family. Visit http://www.discoverpalmcoast.com/events
AND there’s a “little” event going on in our neighboring county – the Coke Zero 400 – that is sure to bring some folks up our way!
The City of Bunnell is continuing its 100th birthday celebration on Monday, July 8, with a time capsule burial ceremony at 5 pm at Coquina City Hall. Meet the nine area 5th graders who took an Oath of Honor to become the “Honorary Centennians,” the Time Capsule Guardians for the City for the next 50 years! Then at 6 pm, there will be a Kiwanis Playground Dedication at Carver Sports Center, 405 Drain Street. Get in the spirit by dressing up in what they wore back in 1913 for Bunnell’s Birthday Party at 7 pm at the Coquina City Hall. If you need suggestions on dress or more info on all the festivities, visit www.bunnellcity.us
Aren’t we lucky to have so many fun things to celebrate in this great county? Enjoy!
PS – It’s a few weeks off, but save the date of Thursday, July 25 for the next Hospitality Alliance and Arts & Cultural Alliance meetings. We’ll have more details soon about the event, being planned at European Village!
