The Florida Panhandle is busy in October, so fire up your RV and plan on attending some of these great events this month.
Pirates of the High Seas Fest – October 7-9 in Panama City Beach
Set sail for the long Columbus Day weekend by celebrating a different kind of marauding sea adventurers — oh, yes, ahoy mates! With three days of fun lined up, families will be busy as they seek for treasure on a scavenger hunt, prepare for pirate invasions, take photos during the kids parade and ooh and ahh during the fireworks show.
Alligator Warrior Festival – Oct 14-16 in Lake City
Fun fact: Lake City was known as Alligator, Fla., in the early 1800s and its most famous resident was the Seminole commander, Alligator Warrior. In addition to celebrating the Native American people who made Florida their original home, this annual fest includes a reenactment of the 1836 battle of San Felasco Hammock, plus music, dancing, living-history camps, traders, craftsmen and food vendors.
Bellamy Bridge Ghost Walks – Oct 28-29 at Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail
The restless spirit of Elizabeth Jane Croom Bellamy, who died in 1837, which accounts for numerous eyewitness tales of strange manifestations near the site of the Bellamy Bridge and proximity to Halloween, make late October’s annual Ghost Walks a spooky slam dunk. There are also the legends about a murdered moonshine runner and a headless driver that keep the spiritual lore alive. Reservations for the walks should be available starting in late September.
