Kingdom Come Festival - many more bands, July 10, 12pm to July 11, 10:30pm and its FREE
Every year, shortly after Easter, the Destin Charter Fishing Fleet , private boats, and cruise ships like the Buccaneer and the Southern Star and the Sun Venture gather together to celebrate the rich tradition and history of the Destin fishing. For 56 years, on Ascension Thursday, pastors from Destin’s churches gather behind Fisherman’s Wharf for the Annual Blessing of Fleet A tradition that began more than 50 years ago, the Blessing of Fleet celebrates those who make their living from the sea and prays for safe passage and bountiful catches. In fact, since Destin began organizing the annual event, no charter fishing boat has been lost at sea. Many believe the Blessing of the Fleet has protected our shores from Hurricanes and the Oil Spill, and it’s hard to argue that the event hasn’t helped the community weather some storms. The Blessing of Fleet is an opportunity for all of visitors, locals and us alike to celebrate Destin and the Gulf of Mexico. The Blessing of the Fleet is free and open to the public. It begins at 4:00 PM with a short service, and then the boats parade into the Gulf of Mexico, a little after 5:00. After the Blessing, the public is invited to attend a community fish fry (don’t miss the key lime pie) to Benefit Fisherman For Christ, a charitable organization designed to help the crew and mates of the charter fishing fleet in times of need. While the event is free, a donation, or love offering, is requested for the fish fry. Destin’s “small town charm” and appeal, this event helps as a little reminder of how Destin became the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village, www.cityofdestin.com. make it a point to check out the Blessing of The Fleet. It is a community tradition unlike any other in Destin. Story courtesy of Captain Steve and Wendy Wilson of the Southern Star Dolphin Cruise and Buccaneer Pirate Cruise
