‘’Celebrate the Ocean Lifestyle’’
The 4th Annual Ocean Reef Beach Festival is once again coming to Pelican Beach Park in Satellite Beach on December 5th, 2015. This one-of-a-kind event that celebrates every facet of our coastal lifestyle; surfing, fishing, beachcombing, eco-tourism on our reef, kayaking, paddle boarding and bird watching, just to name a few; because so many of us do all these things on our unique stretch of coastline. The event has grown to include over 90 vendors and exhibitors, and will fill the giant beachside park.
Plan to come and experience the combination of music, food, live entertainment, vendor displays, artwork, and free professional training and educational activities.
