Bowlegs Festival in Fort Walton Beach

The Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival is well underway, and if you rent a home in Fort Walton Beach, be sure to head out and enjoy this weekend’s festivities!

This favorite Emerald Coast festival is now in its 59th year. Last night marked the kickoff with the annual Torchlight Parade down Eglin Parkway. We hope you made it out to catch beads and other goodies, as well as watch the pirates march into town!

Tonight, head over to the Fort Walton Beach Landing. The kids will enjoy trick or treating at the downtown shops, before heading over to the waters edge for activities and pirate fun, including a skirmish at 7 PM. Live music will begin at 5 PM with favorite local band Heritage rocking at 7 PM before fireworks at 9 PM. On Saturday, head back out for more family fun in the sun.
