Panama City Beach's third annual Chasin' the Sun Music Festival held it's second day of music at Pier Park on Saturday. The festival is part of the Tourism Development Council's plans to draw more visitors to the city.
 
"The music is gonna be great, I mean we are really looking forward to having a wonderful evening under the stars," said TDC Executive Director Dan Rowe.
 
"It's a great time of year to come and we are just having a great time out here," said Tony Ogburn, a tourist visiting from Mississippi.
 
The two day long festival was free and open to the public. Night one featured bands including Charlie Thomas' Drifters and the Tams, while Saturday's performance was by the Panama City POPS Orchestra.The TDC has plans to keep events like these more consistent throughout the year.
 
"We do special events, both that we put on and we sponsor, to give people additional reasons to come back to the beach on a year round basis," said Rowe. 
 
Chasin' the Sun Music Festival will continue to mark Panama City Beach's transition from summer to fall in the years to come. Notable past performances at the festival include Chris Stapleton and Alan Jackson.
