Mardi Gras – Panama City Beach Style!

I’m from Louisiana.  No great beaches here, but we do have our festivals… and Mardi Gras is one of the best!!  What?!?!  You’ve never experienced any part of  Mardi Gras?  It’s time you did!!

Mardi Gras has an in-determinant number of descriptions, some of which include the traditional colors of purple, green and gold, the myriad of events that surround the time between twelfth night and fat Tuesday, traditions, postures and parades.  But still, it’s so misunderstood.  It’s not a big drunk.  It’s not a big parade. It’s not the beads.  It’s not the doubloons.  It’s not the king cakes.  It’s not about girls flashing. It’s not about people of all walks of life dressing in costume.  It’s about the love of life!  It’s the convergence of food, music, creativity, eccentricity, neighborhoods and the joy of life celebrated all together at the same moment.

Mardi Gras celebrations are found all along the gulf coast, each with its own size and annual traditions.  Panama City Beach is no different!   With Mardi Gras in Panama City Beach, you get all the thrill of the love of life AND you get the most beautiful beaches in the world — all at once!!  You get smiles from ear to ear, lifelong memories and handfuls of beads.  You get parades, costumes, music and fireworks!  You get the camaraderie of the community celebrating together.  You get a small celebration with a big schedule of events!  You get Mardi Gras in Panama City Beach!!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!!  (Let the good times roll!)

PANAMA CITY BEACH SEABREEZE JAZZ FESTIVAL

SEABREEZE JAZZ FESTIVAL

Panama City Beach, FL

April 20 – 24, 2016

 Jazz1

Smooth jazz…that’s what Panama City Beach’s Seabreeze Jazz Festival is all about!  The epitome of “The Good Life”, smooth jazz is laid back, yet upscale at the same time, relaxing and familiar as a pair of your most comfortable beach sandals. Here’s a festival dedicated to just this lifestyle; and, we still have availability at the condos!

Beginning April 20th, sit back and enjoy a Dinner Cruise aboard the Solaris Dinner yacht featuring Nick Colionne.  On Thursday, The Solaris Dinner yacht departs again, but this time for a lunch cruise featuring Mindi Abair.

Jazz2

After the cruise on Thursday, on the main stage at Aaron Bessant Park, 10 minutes from the condos, you’ll be serenaded all day long by some of your favorites.  There’s even an All Star after party jam nightly, featuring individual artists!!  On Friday, the fun begins all over again at 1pm and continues into the night with more of your favorites at both Pompano Joe’s at Pier Park and the main stage at Aaron Bessant Park!  Get up early on Saturday and Sunday, because the days are filled with smooth jazz performances – what’s not to like!!  Beginning at 8 am on both days and again throughout the day and night, your favorites will be giving their bests again.  All performances end on Sunday with an appearance of Jazz All Stars featuring Peabo Bryson, Nick Colionne, Brian Simpson, and Elan Trotman!

This is truly an event not to be missed!!  For more detailed ticket and schedule information, visit www.seabreezejazzfestival.com.  For more information about accommodations at our condos, visit our website at www.oceanvillacondo.com or give me a call at 800-478-0591.

If you can’t attend the festival, but still love smooth jazz, tune in from your computer or phone to Seabreeze 106.3 fm while working to listen to your favorite smooth jazz or just to see what it’s all about!  I think you’ll agree, smooth jazz and the beach — there’s no other “relax and unwind” combination like it!!
