Fun and festivities abound at Harborwalk Village during August to Labor Day with great events and classes. Learn new things, enjoy great music, partake of fantastic food, and view spectacular firework displays.
The Red, White and Blue Celebration at HarborWalk Village is always a special event. It honors “local heroes’ every Thursday night. These people have done much to contribute to our community to make it a better place. A true celebration, you can enjoy live entertainment, with face painting and free crafts for the kids. The WWII replica flyover should not be missed! A final signature to the evening is a dazzling display of fireworks over the Destin Harbor. Time 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM.
Food For Thought is a local hero honored at the Red, White and Blue Celebration. It helps school children who endure food scarcity in our community. Living in homes that do not have enough food to eat, these children depend on the school for free or reduced meals. Food For Thought helps feed these children healthy, easy to prepare food for the weekends using a backpack program every Friday. It also provides food to these families during the holiday and summer break. Founded by Tiffanie Shelton, Food For Thought Outreach helps children at Destin Elementary, Butler Elementary, Bay Elementary, and Emerald Coast Middle School. It depends strongly on food donations from the community. Pantry item donations are always gladly accepted.
