Bust out your favorite green socks and hats, and practice your jig because everyone is Irish in South Walton for the annual 30A St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival this Saturday, March 17th!
The parade starts on Scenic 30A at 2 pm, just west of County Highway 83 (Blue Mountain Beach Road) and travels west to Gulf Place. The Grand Marshal of the parade this year will be Walton County Commissioner Tony Anderson.
At SoWal.com, we are committed to helping locals and visitors stay safe while enjoying our beautiful beaches. The beach is such a wonderful place to relax. At the beach, life is beautiful and we slip into a state of mind where we feel comfortable, carefree, and secure. That's what a vacation is all about!
However, the gulf waters can be dangerous and it's important to always put safety first. For detailed information about Beach Safety go here >
If you love outdoor adventure on the world's most beautiful beaches, you'll want to take a day (or three!) to explore the Emerald Coast Boat & Lifestyle Show coming up this weekend in Panama City Beach.
The State Parks and State Forest Lands in South Walton are spectacular. Protected lands make up about 40% of the land south of the bay.
We are so blessed to have such treasure all around us. The lakes, bayous, creeks, forests, dunes and beaches in our parks make SoWal a very special place. Incredible landscapes with coastal dune lakes, lake outfalls kissing the Gulf, flowering dune magnolias, soaring pelicans, dancing dolphins, flower-covered dunes - the wonders of coastal nature are everywhere you turn.
