The Lionfish Festival this Weekend!
Posted on May 12, 2015
After your morning of shopping real estate in Pensacola, be sure to head downtown and checkout the first annual Lionfish Festival! Taking place May 15 and 16, this event is sure to be fun for locals and especially divers!
Hosted by theĀ Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition, this event is not only fun, but also serves a great purpose in our community. Lionfish, though beautiful, are an invasive species and it is important to limit their numbers in our local waters.
While there will be a wonderful festival taking place at Plaza de Luna at the end of Palafox Street, which will feature many local businesses and organizations, the real action is for those diving during the Lionfish Tournament. For those wishing to dive, registration is just $35.00. The weigh-ins are exciting and fun to watch so be sure to hang out at the festival Saturday evening and Sunday morning for the awards.
Are you a local diver who wants to take part in the action and stay nearby, too? Be sure to shop our Pensacola Beach condo rental special to save 15% on your stay with our friends at Southern Vacation Rentals. Just reserve online using code ‘LIONFISH’ or call a Vacation Planner to book your condo or beach home.
