The weather is warming up and visions of summer days to come are dancing in all of our heads! However, there is no shortage of fun to be had in the final months before summer makes its official appearance. The friendly tourists are already starting to pile in true South Walton form, we have plenty of unique events for everyone to enjoy this month! Here are some unique events happing in April that we think you should check out!

Cocktails & Classics at The Pearl Rooftopcocktail-1107006_1280

I don’t know about you, but they had us at cocktails on the rooftop! And at The Pearl rooftop, no less. Come out to the Havana Beach Rooftop Lounge on Saturday nights at 7pm and enjoy a classic film, food and drinks, and a good time. Admission is complimentary (and so is the popcorn)! There will be other food available for purchase and the bar will be open until 10pm.

Farmers Market to Table Cooking Demo at The Pearl

Speaking of The Pearl in Rosemary Beach, this is another event that may tickle your fancy, especially for the locals! We have no shortage of impressive Farmers Markets scattered along 30A, so this cooking demo would be a great way to make the most out of your seasonal ingredients that you score each week at the market. You will also learn how to preserve the flavor and nutrients of your market finds when cooking them. Reservations are preferred for this event. Get more information here! Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 9th!
