Mardi Gras and Gumbo Served up in Sandestin

Break out your calendar. The time draws near when it is absolutely anticipated that you will break those New Year’s resolutions. That’s right, Mardi Gras is only about a month away!

This year, a happy confluence of holidays makes Fat Tuesday even more fun.  Mardi Gras (Tuesday, Feb. 21) is the next day after Presidents Day (Monday, Feb. 20) this year, which means whoever is in charge of deciding these things loves us! It’s a certified, holiday weekend.

30A Songwriters Festival 2012 Photo Gallery

There was something for everyone over the three days of the third annual 30A Songwriters Festival. Nonstop music in great venues indoors and out along the world's most beautiful beaches. 

Lucky ticket holders were treated to more than 125 songwriters and over 250 performances in venues ranging from intimate listening rooms to spacious outdoor amphitheaters.

SoWal.com staff and contest winners covered it all and we'll be posting lots of stories, photos and videos in the coming days so stay tuned.
