Kayak, Barbecue & Blues Festival — Saturday, Aug. 31, 9 a.m. until fireworks begin at 8:30 p.m. at Hub Stacey’s at the Point; 5851 Galvez Road, Perdido Key.
When you’re starting a festival from scratch, it’s important to find new ingredients that will bring people together for memorable good times. That’s the idea behind the first annual Kayak, Barbeque and Blues Festival, to be held at Hub Stacey’s, a waterfront bar and restaurant.
The festival will feature a Battle of the Paddle! kayak and paddleboard races, with cash prizes. Locals know the power of the musicians who will take the stage: Big Muddy, the Lucky Doggs and the Blues Brothers Soul Band. The BBQ cook-off will be a culinary lollapalooza, and the night will conclude with a spectacular fireworks show that begins at 8:30 p.m. This will not be your father’s fireworks show.
