Spring Beach Blast Triathlon and Duathlon

April 27, 2019

The annual Beach Blast Triathlon is back! Well, sort of. This year’s race will be virtual and anyone can participate. Do a triathlon in your own pool, your neighborhood road or even on a treadmill and you’ll receive a unique Beach Blast t-shirt, bib and medal. You can take the whole week to complete the event!

You can even participate in another race, wear your Beach Blast tee, hat or visor and use the data as participating. We set the date for April 27th because that is when we would hold the race if Hurricane Micheal had not paid Mexico Beach a brutal visit. The fee is only $39. To learn more and to register, click here!

The 14th Annual America’s Great Plein Air Paint-Out all along Florida’s Forgotten Coast will kick-off on May 3, 2019.  Nationally acclaimed artists will gather along the region to capture what some believe to be the last vestige of authentic “Old Florida.”  From the western end of Mexico Beach to the east side of Alligator Point, artists can be seen painting alongside the roads overlooking the Gulf, as well as in out-of-the-way settings.  Artists from across the States, as well as international locations, capture images of nature, flora and fauna, and local color in the Plein Air tradition.

This event is comprised of daily artist demonstrations, workshops, and sales of locally created art.  For more information on exhibits, receptions and a complete schedule of events, please click here.
