The fall season has an abundance of fun things to do for the entire family. I constantly see Segway Tours in the downtown Pensacola area. One of the fun Segway offerings from Emerald Coast Tours is the Haunted History Tour which runs thru Halloween. This one hour tour showcases Haunted Downtown Pensacola. Be thrilled and chilled by the tour guides as they share the most macabre side of Pensacola History. You can contact Emerald Coast Tours at 850-417-9292 for details.
As long as you are here for Halloween, you should treat yourself to the Pensacola Little Theatre's rendition of The Rocky Horror Show. Always a crowd pleaser, this show runs thru November 5th. PLT invites you to do the Time Warp; you can dress up as your favorite character, and shout out comeback lines. Pensacola Little Theatre is the oldest continually operating community theater in the Southeastern United States. www.pensacolalittletheatre.com
Perdido Key is home to the 32st Annual Frank Brown Songwriters Festival. Described by promoters as the granddaddy of Gulf Coast songwriters festivals, this event offers more than 200 Grammy award-winning songwriters and also up-and-coming stars performing their original songs and talk about the stories behind the music. You can enjoy the beaches, seafood and eleven days of original music. Admission is free at many venues, but some may ask for a small cover charge. Call 850-492-7664 for more information.
Fall is festival season here on the Gulf Coast. Next weekend, November 4-6, will find the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival in full swing in Seville Square Park, Pensacola. This three-day, juried art show draws several hundred painters, potters, sculptors, jewelers, graphic artists, craftsmen, and other artists. Live musicians provide entertainment in Fountain Park with Zydeco, bluegrass, jazz, blues and classical selections. The Children's Arts Festival is next door in Bartram Park, featuring numerous hands-on artistic opportunities provided free of charge. The Children's Festival is open Friday for children with special needs from selected schools and is open to everyone on Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Food and beverages are available.
My marathon days may be over, but you can still sign up to participate in the12th Annual Pensacola Marathon. The line up is November 13, 20166:30 am at Veteran's Memorial Park located at 200 S 10th Avenue, Pensacola. The race begins and ends at Veteran's Memorial Park on the beautiful Pensacola Bayfront and winds its way along a 13.1-mile circuit of the city for the half marathoners and a full 26.2 loop for the full marathon. The course features running through historic neighborhoods, the downtown district, bands, and loads of cheering Pensacolians. The finish line is next to the only replica of the National Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Pensacola Marathon is also a Boston Qualifier for you still needing to qualify.
