New Year’s Eve – 30A, South Walton Style to Destin FL
Celebrating the New Year is a time old tradition that we all enjoy keeping. Just because the temperatures may be warm and the breezes salty, doesn’t mean we, here on the Emerald Coast, don’t know how to bring in the New Year… New York may have a ball and so does Destin FL! Fireworks are abound up and down the Emerald Coast in the Panhandle.
Let’s take a look at who is hosting New year’s Eve 2013 Celebrations:
I commence with the Solaris – SunQuest Cruises located in Baytowne Marina, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The cruise begins at 8:00pm (Check in is 7:15pm) and continues through 12:30am New Year’s morning. Dine on a four course feast and watch the Destin FL Fireworks from the Choctawhatchee Bay while live entertainment rings in 2013.
Reservations required. Call (850) 650-2519 – Cost: $105 per person (must be 21 years of age or older).
Once again, Baytowne Wharf, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, will host the Baytowne Countdown. This year the Sounds of Motown by the Amazing Hat Band and the Ultimate Bob Jovi Journey Experience will help to usher in the New Year. Fireworks over the Lagoon will delight both young and old at Midnight.
Throughout HarborWalk Village, Destin, the restaurants and the Main Stage 2 will have live music. The 5th annual Ball drop will be accompanied by fireworks. Visit The New year’s Celebration at HarborWalk from 6:00pm to 12:00 midnight.
30A’s scenic town of Seaside will begin it’s celebration at 6:00pm with live music, including The Voice’s Tony Lucca. Other entertainers – Jacob Jeffries Band and Brendan James will be performing along with street performers and activities for the kids.
Of Course The Red Bar, Grayton Beach (70 Holtz Ave) will be sliding the new year in with DJ Vladi and The Red Bar Jazz Band. For details and reservations, call 850-231-1008 or visit their website: The Red Bar.
For those less inclined to celebrate late into the evening, The Fonville Press at Alys Beach will traditionally be serving gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, white chicken chili, while live music by Kyle La Monica plays. Join them for cocktails and the sandwiches from 11:00 am through 1:00 pm!
Whether you are celebrating along 30A, in Destin, FL or somewhere else, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a truly Healthy and Happy New Year!by Debbie James from http://www.debbiejames.com.
