Celebrate Twice Event Is Back this New Year’s Eve!


Welcome 2015 in Two Time Zones!

Once again, the neighboring coastal villages of Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe, Florida, have you covered this holiday season with a unique, fun, and safe event to help you kick off 2015 with a bang! Celebrate Twice features 13 different bars and restaurants throughout the two towns and a free trolley system that makes regular stops at each one, giving guests the opportunity to celebrate the countdown to 2015 in the Eastern time zone at various hot spots in Port St. Joe, then take a short ride over to Mexico Beach in the Central time zone and do it all again—without worrying about who will be the designated driver.

Celebrate Twice was created by the Mexico Beach CDC and the Gulf County TDC as a safe alternative to drinking and driving from one town to the next. Since then, it has become one of the area’s most popular annual events! Visitors staying in Mexico Beach can hop on the trolley at the El Governor Motel or Rustic Sands Campground, or walk from rental homes and other lodging options to any of the trolley’s six stops—strategically placed to reduce dangerous traffic—and have a worry-free night!

The trollies run from 8:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. EST (7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. CST) and will make stops for all the best live music, food, drinks and even fireworks on the beach in Port St. Joe at 10:00 p.m. EST and in Mexico Beach at midnight, CST.

December 31 will also feature a scavenger hunt throughout Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe, a great way for the whole family to enjoy the beautiful beaches, shops and nature before heading out to celebrate later that night! Get your scavenger hunt map at either the Mexico Beach or the Gulf County Welcome Center or online at www.CelebrateTwice.com. It will list six businesses (three in each town) that will be giving away free New Year’s Eve promotional items. (No purchase necessary from the shops in order to collect the unique hunt items.) Each time a visitor collects an item, the merchant will punch their logo on the visitor’s card. Once all logos have been punched, the visitor can turn the card in to either Welcome Center for a chance to win a two-night stay for Celebrate Twice next year!
