Smoke on the Coast at Destin Commons
Kick off the Fourth of July holiday at the 9th Annual Smoke on the Coast BBQ and Fireworks Festival at Destin Commons on Wednesday, July 3 from 5-9pm. Eighteen plus area restaurants and BBQ aficionados will light up their grills to prepare their best dishes in hopes to win up to $15,000 for their partner charity, Coins for a Cause.
This year, 18 area charities will be teaming up with various restaurants and BBQ aficionados to fire up their grills. Attendees sample mouth-watering BBQ dishes hot off the grills and cast their votes for the coveted People’s Choice title and celebrity judges will award Judge’s Pick winners. Live music by Heritage Band starts at 5pm and the BBQ tasting will begin at 5:30 pm, for $1 per sampling, people get to vote for People’s Choice winners.
Kid’s activities, street performers, and continuous live music, including Heritage and other local favorites, will keep the party going. The evening will end with a patriotic firework extravaganza and over $80,000 in funds donated to local non-profit organizations.
