(November 9- November 11)
Veterans Day is an important holiday for every American citizen and especially for those who have family members or friends who have served in the United States Armed forces. Each veteran has sacrificed their lives to ensure our freedom and protect our lives; it is an honorable act. For me, my father is a veteran, and every day I remind myself of his strength and integrity. In the spirit of Veterans Day this year, here are some events in Destin to have some family fun while also showing your honor for our veterans.
Blues, Brews, and BBQ November 9, 2019
The 12th annual “Blues, Brews, and BBQ” is the perfect way to start your Veteran’s Day Weekend. Located at HarborWalk Village, local restaurants will be competing in a friendly competition for the best BBQ-style and signature coastal food. There will be plenty of mouth-watering BBQ dish and sauce samples to go around, along with craft brews. Treat your tastebuds while enjoying live music from John Hart & Tyler Mac. Bring along the family or friends for a day of relaxation and fun.
