Fort Walton Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, a leading provider of full-service vacation condominiums and home rentals in the U.S., announced today the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival special, a generous lodging discount that offers festival-goers up to 25 percent off select accommodations.
The first full weekend of each June, the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival brings music and dance performances, interactive games for the kids, living history demonstrations, a torchlight parade, and even a skirmish between Billy Bowlegs’ invading Pirate Krewe and the Mayor’s Militia on the shores of Fort Walton Beach, Fla. The family-friendly event will kickoff on Thursday, June 2 and run through Monday, June 6, 2011, at The Landing Park.
As a proud supporter of the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival,ResortQuest Fort Walton Beach is offering up to 25 percent off stays of three nights or more for festival attendees at eligible vacation rentals on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach. This special rate is available from Wednesday, June 1 through Tuesday, June 7, 2011.
“Located just across the water from Landing Park, ResortQuest's rental properties on Okaloosa Island are convenient to all the swashbuckling events, yet provide a restful escape when you're ready to wind down,” said Ryan Christopher, senior operations manager, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Northwest Florida. “Plus, you can't beat Okaloosa's beachfront accommodations for watching the festival fireworks over the Santa Rosa Sound.”
Fort Walton Beach is an authentic beach town, with languid Southern charm and downhome hospitality. Attractions such as an aquarium and a science center appeal to families. Meanwhile, the boardwalk and public esplanade lure couples and singles with cocktails and live music overlooking the water.
From humble beginnings as a water-skiing celebration organized by the United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees) in 1953, the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival has grown into a highly anticipated yearly event hosted by the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce. Admission is free for all ages.
The main festival events will take place at the waterfront at The Landing Park, with various related events happening in and around the Downtown Fort Walton Beach area. The Mardi Gras-style Torchlight Parade takes place on Monday night, moving from historic downtown Fort Walton Beach down Eglin Parkway.
