The Blessing of the Fleet
Posted on May 13, 2015
If you own a home in Fort Walton Beach or Okaloosa Island real estate, we have a great reason for you to hop the bridge over to Destin this week. It’s time to bless the fleet!
Blessing’s Week in Destin is a tradition and the Blessing of the Fleet has been going on for more than 50 years! Blessing Week involves the area churches going out to visit and bless different organizations each day. Today, for instance, is the Blessing of the Marketplace when business owners and leaders gather to have their shops blessed.
The Blessing of the Fleet will take place on Thursday beginning with a service at 4pm. Afterwards, the boats will line the harbor as each one’s name is called and blessed in anticipation of the upcoming summer fishing season. Be sure to stick around for dinner. A fish fry will begin at 5:30pm and you won’t find a fresher catch than along the docks of Destin!
