Memorial Day at Mexico Beach

WOW what a weekend!    This had to be the busiest weekend on record for Mexico Beach!!
It's always great to see homes that are usually vacant occupied with families enjoying the gorgeous weather we had!!!     The picture below says it all!!!      Of course, please realize, this is ATYPICAL!  It is only this crowded because its Memorial Day...the only other weekend it will be this crazy is 4th of July!!!


And speaking of the brave men and women who serve in the armed forces.....
THE EVENT COMMITTEE of the  FORGOTTEN COAST WARRIOR WEEKEND
on behalf of Port St. Joe and the surrounding communities will host 20 (Twenty) wounded Warriors
and their companions from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars the weekend of May 3...0 thru June 2. We will honor them with a PATRIOTIC BANQUET, A FISHING TOURNAMENT EVENT , LOTS OF FUN AND A GRAND PARADE/Motorcade.

THE GRAND PARADE WILL BEGIN AT 5: 30 P.M. on Thursday May 31 from WINDMARK BEACH where they will be staying and end at the Centennial Bldg where they will be honored and enjoy a patriotic banquet.

THE EVENT COMMITTEE WANTS TO URGE OUR COMMUNITY TO LINE THE PARADE ROUTE, WAVE AMERICAN FLAGS AND GIVE THESE WARRIORS, WHO HAVE SACRIFICED SO MUCH FOR US A RESOUNDING PORT ST. JOE WELCOME.

 

The City of Mexico Beach has, within the last few years,  done some great things for the town.....#1. The sidewalks!     It's so great to see the strollers, runners, walkers, bikers up and down the sidewalks starting early in the morning all day long until after the sunsets!!!    #2.  Golf carts...we are a golf cart friendly area and more and more people are taking advantage of this fun transportation mode!    It makes it so much easier for people several blocks back to haul all the kids and beach paraphernailia to the beach without having to get in the car!    It's become a form of entertainment around here!  It's a lot easier to stop and talk to somebody in their yard or riding on their bike, or taking a walk when you are in a golf cart than if you are in a car....so its also become a social thing!!!!



Memorial weekend is typically not a big weekend for real estate.  Families are too busy having fun!    Of course, we all showed property and a few offers thrown out and even a few accepted.  I'll update you later on those!
Suffice it to say.....inventory is still low......if you are serious about buying this year.....don't hesitate too long........I think we are at the bottom of the market and we just don't have a lot to choose from!
Interest rates are ridiculously low!!!!      Just make sure you have 20% to put down if you are buying a 2nd home/investment!

Snapper season starts June 1!!!!    I know Chip's calendar is filling up so if you want to catch some snapper this year...you better call and schedule it!!!    The season is only about 40 days long...limit of 2 per person.  But they are PLENTIFUL AND LARGE!!!!
