Fall always kicks off with the Pensacola Seafood Festival. We normally walk over for lunch on Friday, but the festival runs thru Sunday afternoon. Come and sample a huge variety of local seafood venues conveniently together in Seville Square. While you are here, make sure to check out the entertainment, art and craft vendors and children's area in Fountain Park. September 29 - October 1, 2017.
Another great opportunity to sample terrific local food is the Pensacola Greek Festival October 13-15, 2017. The Pensacola Greek Festival offers delicious Greek food and pastries, lively Greek music and dancing. Presented annually by the parishioners and friends of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 1720 W Garden St, the festival attracts more than 20,000 guests each year.
I love Halloween and Pensacola offers many fun options you do not see everywhere. The Haunted History Segway Tour is running thru the end of October at 7:30 PM. The Segway Tour is Pensacola's fun Haunted History Tour that makes the most of our 500-year history. You can participate in a guided Segway tour through the historic downtown district of Pensacola and learn our city's stories of ghosts, murders, and mayhem.
Segways not your thing? Historic Pensacola will host its annual Haunted House Walking and Trolley Tours on October 21, 27 and 28.
Ghoulish guests may choose from among three walking tour routes including the Seville Spirits, Murder and Mayhem, and the Adult-Only Red-light Tour. The Seville Spirits and Murder & Mayhem tours depart every thirty minutes between 7:00 and 8:30 p.m. The Adult Only Red-Light tour departs at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. The walking tours, led by volunteer guides who share the haunted history of Pensacola, last an hour and 15 minutes.
