Spring is coming, and so are the events on the Florida’s Gulf Coast. Of course safety measures are in place during these local events—and you are encouraged to mask up, spread out, and put your health and well-being first (as well as for those around you). But you can still get out there and have fun! Many of these events are held outdoors where the fresh air and Florida sunshine are abundant.
There are a few events that are not running this year but are looking ahead to next year—and some are already making plans for 2022. IRB BeachFest, Indian Rocks Beach Greenfest, and the Children’s Gasparilla and main Gasparilla events are not running this year. Visit their websites and Facebook pages for the latest information and updates for upcoming future events.
So which of these local big spring events will you be attending this year? It all starts with being here! Book your Indian Rocks Beach vacation rental and start counting down the days until you’re having fun in the sun and soaking up the Gulf of Mexico views. Happy Spring!
