Memorial Day Events in South Walton & Destin

The official start to summer is almost here. And what better place to spend Memorial Day, honoring those who have served our country while spending time with family and friends than along the sugar sand beaches of South Walton and Destin, Florida.
After a day of soaking up the sun, there are plenty of Memorial Day events along the Emerald Coast that will have the family feeling patriotic as well as entertained.
At Sandestin’s Village of Baytowne Wharf, live music begins Saturday and lasts all weekend long. Enjoy bands on the Events Plaza stage each night.
