Friends of Eden decided to make the film series a park tradition and we're so glad they did. The film series started in 2014 thanks to local Friends of Eden Gardens State Park including Edward Jack, Rachel Nussbaum, and Bailey Miller. The first vintage film series included Frogs (of course), Cocoon, and The Creature of the Black Lagoon - all filmed either nearby or somewhere in Florida.
This year's films also have some local connection except Beetlejuice which somehow fits just fine. Jaws 2 was filmed in Destin, Okaloosa Island and Navarre Beach (among other coastal locations in the US). And Frogs, of course, was filmed at Eden Gardens State Park in Point Washington at the exact spot we'll be sitting and watching the film. Frogs will remain part of the film series as a Halloween tradition for SoWal each and every year.
Friends of Eden remind us to bring bug spray (and a cooler if you wish). Grayon Beer company will have some local brews on tap. And concessions will be available for donations. Thanks to Friends of Eden Gardens State Park for bringing this film series to South Walton!
Eden Gardens State Park
Our favorite SoWal State Park for taking a break from the beach is the spectacular Eden Gardens State Park on Tucker Bayou in Point Washington. Drive straight up Scenic Hwy 395 from Seagrove Beach, across Hwy 98 and you'll see the entrance up on the left.
