Bay County Tourist Development Council Prepares for Fall Events

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Hurricane Irma swept through the state devastating many different areas. Luckily the Panhandle was not one of them. Some potential Panama City Beach visitors may be hesitant about coming to Florida after Hurricane Irma, but the beach is open and businesses are running as usual. 

The Bay County Tourist Development Council is working hard to let people know that the area is open and ready for tourists throughout the fall.

Bay County TDC Executive Director Dan Rowe said that although the official tourist season may be coming to a close, there is still a lot going on.  

"We have a lot of festivals and events that are coming up. We have the Lobster festival coming up. We have the Pirates of the High Seas Fest, Oktoberfest in Thunder Beach and Emerald Coast Cruizin' and then the Ironman. I mean there is just a lot to do in Panama City Beach," said Rowe.

The TDC also has a new partnership with Southern Living Magazine. They will will help promote Panama City Beach events throughout the fall, winter and spring.
