Anna Maria Island will host the 'Bridging the Gap' festival from October 2, until November 16.
Island businesses have organized 30 different events for the public. Some of the activities include a trolley scavenger hunt, a dog costume contest, karaoke, open air markets and a golf tournament.
Events will take place at certain times throughout the six-week Anna Maria Island bridge closure. 'Bridging the Gap' is one of the many Anna Maria Island events that local retailers will participate in throughout the year.
"Many local businesses wanted to get together and do something fun. We think we've got a great diverse group of events planned with something for everyone," said Sue Burnley, Operations Manager of Anna Maria Gulf Coast Rentals, an Anna Maria vacation rentals resource and one of the festival's contributors. Proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities and some of the merchants will be offering discounts throughout the bridge closure.
"In celebration of the festival, Anna Maria Gulf Coast Rentals is offering 20% off select vacation rentals from now to November 21st. We hope the festival brings in people who fall in love with our community and want to spend more time here. We think we've got a pretty special place for the people who live on the island and we're excited to share it with some that may not know we're here. We're sure that anyone who comes to our island and our festival will fall in love with it," said Burnley.
