Here is video of the Memorial Day weekend that held many exciting events for locals and tourists alike.Fernandina Pirates Club pillaging and plundering the unsuspecting tourists.
Saturday was the Ed Gaw Open Water Swim Challenge at Main Beach and Amelia Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast sponsored both a 40 mile and a 100 mile bicycle ride for free!
The beaches were packed all weekend and so was the Fernandina Beach Golf Course. The Fernandina Beach Pirates Pub Crawl on Sunday afternoon was a huge hit selling more than 200 tickets in advance. No one is sure what the money goes towards, but many of the merchants I spoke with in the historic district said, “If it brings people downtown, I don’t really care what happened to the money.”
Of course, Memorial Day is a day of remebrance for those who paid the ultimate price for our freedoms and they should be remembered each and every day of the year!
