Kick off 2016 in seaside style at this special St. Augustine Beach event! Voted the Best Family New Year’s Event in Florida, Beach Blast Off features great food, lots of live music, entertainment for the whole family, an exciting Kids’ Zone – and fireworks!
Each child got a chance to speak with Santa Claus, and make some last minute requests. Although Santa Claus is usually pretty busy in December gearing up for the big day, he always makes a point to stop by his favorite police department and take a picture with the kids of St. Augustine!
This is an annual memorial ceremony held at the St Augustine Beach Park that is named in a police officer Ron Parker’s honor — Parker who was 27 years-old at the time, has been the only St Augustine Beach law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty.
The event is presented by former and current law enforcement officers, firefighters, elected officials including judges, the District 7 state attorney, and private citizens.
