October's Must-Stay Parks:
Flagler County Festivals Abound Year-Round

Everywhere, USA is known for one festival or another but Flagler County takes the cake with endless festivities year-round!

Relax under the majestic oaks and gaze out upon the shores of Pellicer Creek at the Eighth Annual Creekside Festival in October. Creekside has become one of the most popular festivals around drawing in more than 10,000 visitors last year. This is the perfect event for the whole family to enjoy with live Bluegrass music all day, kayaking tours through Tropical Kayaks, hiking tours, games, arts & crafts and MORE!

The roar of motorcycles will fill the air every March & October as visitors from near and far come in for the nationally renowned biker events known as Bike Week & Biketoberfest. Let out your inner biker as you party to live music throughout Flagler County.

Those looking to get in shape and go on a spectacular adventure will love the Lighterknot Adventure Race in Flagler County’s prime jewel Princess Place Preserve. The event features a 3 and 8 hour race segment, so come out and join in on the fun! Visit the Pangea Adventure Racing website for more information on this adventure. Visitors looking to catch a bit of history in their excursions will be immersed in it at the Florida Agricultural Museum’s “Pellicer Raid” Civil War Re-Enactment. Join in the fun hearing the stories of authentic cavalry and infantry camps or watch the battles unfold right before your eyes.

The Annual Tommy Tant Memorial Surf Classic is a Flagler Beach favorite. Drawing surfers from around the globe, this event brings in visitors from near and far to compete amongst each other and celebrate with each other. The Tommy Tant Surf Classic began as a small event to celebrate the life of Tommy Tant, a 24 year old surfer whose life ended suddenly and unexpectedly from an aortic aneurysm. Tommy’s former teachers at Flagler Palm Coast High School were the event’s first organizers and all proceeds went into a scholarship program for local students. The event went from being run by high school teachers to Zoee Forehand, owner of Z-Wave Surf Shop to Will Tant, professional surfer and Tommy’s younger brother. With each passing year the Tommy Tant has evolved from a little surf competition to a nationally recognized event. And this year is solid proof of what a little love, hard work and even harder play can bring.

The City of Palm Coast brings in a slew of spectacular events for the whole family. Boogie down at the Rock & Rib Festival held in the spring or at the Seafood Festival in the fall. Both events feature great food, amazing music and fun for all. During the 4th of July, come out for fireworks at two fantastic locations starting with the City of Palm Coast’s event and moving on to the City of Flagler Beach’s Fabulous 4th Festival with a live beachside firework finale off of the Flagler Beach Municipal Pier.
