A few ways to celebrate the President’s Day along the Emerald Coast!

American Flag

President’s Day, also known as Washington’s Birthday, is on the third Monday of February. It not only honors George Washington, the first President of the United States, and Abraham Lincoln whose both birthdays are in February, but honors all the presidents. It is a federal holiday although most businesses are open except the Post Office. Spice up this upcoming Presidents’ Day Weekend with the following events.
