More sunshine this weekend!

Yes!

The past few weekends have been beautiful.

This one looks beautiful too.

If you’re out and about looking for something to do in the area, here’s a few ideas.

On Saturday, check out the Dauphin Island Art Trail.

It’s an event sponsored by the Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce.

Here’s the details.

The Art Trail features artists located at 10 businesses throughout Dauphin Island.

Visitors will be able to visit each site and collect stamps at each location.

At the end of the day, there will be prizes awarded from a drawing of all names who have collected stamps from all 10 locations.

Fun!

This should be a great event for the family. There’s more than 50 artists plus prizes and entertainment lined up for Dauphin Island’s Art Trail.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 15 from 9am to 4pm.

And if you choose to go to Gulf Shore, there’s the Shrimp Festival going on over there.

The website is here: myshrimpfest.com

BUT…

If you’re going to the Shrimp Festival,

we’d like to make a suggestion.

TAKE THE FERRY FROM DAUPHIN ISLAND.

The ferry ride takes about 45 minutes and is such a beautiful trip over to Gulf Shore.

Here’s info on the ferry, including the schedule and departure times: http://mobilebayferry.com/

AND, AS ALWAYS….

Drop in for lunch or dinner at The Pelican Reef.

We have food specials and drinks specials

And you must try the Blackened Snapper Sensation!

It’s one of the most popular dishes we’ve ever created!

The crowds love it!

So we’ll see you this weekend and be sure to get out and enjoy the sun and all the local events happening in the area.

Hours are 11am – 9pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
