Tupelo Honey Festival

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Do you like Honey? This is a great time of year to visit the quaint little town called WeWahitchka, the locals just call it WeWa. This town is known for it’s World Class fresh water fishing. There are several lakes and rivers that are loaded with Bass, Bream, Channel Cat and my favorite the giant Flat Head Catfish. The Tupelo tree blooms in the spring along the banks of the many rivers. The honey bee’s make the best tasting honey in the world. It is so pure that it never turns to sugar. The festival is May 15 at Lake Alice Park in downtown WeWa. The festival has music, arts and crafts, food, activities, and plenty of Honey to sample and buy. WeWa is located about 30 miles east of Panama City, Fl and 20 miles north of Mexico Beach. If you want to getaway for a great weekend beach vacation go to www.southernresorts.com
They manage Barefoot Cottages in Mexico Beach. Go enjoy some Honey, Honey.

Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival, Niceville FL

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

One of the South’s most celebrated festivals. The mullet is a fish that inhabits our local waters.  Mullet are a vegeritian fish, they think they can fly always jumping and they are the only fish that have a gizzard like a chicken.  Local fisherman catch them with cast net’s.  Fresh fried they are delicious.  The seafood festival starts on Oct 17-19. More than 40,000 hungry mullet fans will consume up to 10 tons of this humble fish this weekend.  There will be all types of food including seafood, international, Cajun, good old country cooking and my favorite boiled peanuts.  The festival caters to families with great shopping, hand crafts, youngsters entertainment, clowns, Army Ranger reptile exhibit and Big name entertainment. Headliners this year are Sara Evans, Rodney Atkins, and Jason Aldean.  Over the last few years I have seen Rick Springfield, Dixie Chicks, Billy Rae Cirus, Kenny Rogers, Travis Tritt, Lone Star, and Rascal Flats. Niceville (nice village) is a small town with a big heart.  It is located just 5 miles north of Destin, FL. Home the World’s most beautiful beach’s, Fort Walton Beach, Eglin AFB, Hurburt AFB and Crestview.  Get away this weekend and have some fun www.southernresorts.com Semper Paratus- I am always ready for your referrals
