2017: A Year in Photos

12 months. 365 days. 8,760 hours. One full banner year is coming to a close here at The Wharf. We sure packed in a calendar worth of unforgettable times in effort to keep your memory banks stocked for ages to come.

Whew. Let’s see now.

There were parades and holiday parties, like our Pepsi Beach Ball Drop and the first annual Happy Howlidays Kid and Pet Parade. Larger-than-life car and boat shows. Incredible feats of fishing that showcased adults and children alike, such as the Blue Marlin Grand Championship and Kids Win at The Wharf Fishing Tournament. The epic C-Spire Concert Series with acts including Luke Bryan, Jimmy Buffett, Green Day, and Kenny Chesney, just to name a few. We hosted nightly light shows, weekly themed Kids Nights, Sparks After Dark firework displays, and clothed the palm trees in different colors to provide encouragement to several worthy causes.

The list goes on. And on. And…well, you get it.

Amidst all the comings and goings this year, we hope to have created a few smiles along the way. It’s the very least we can do to show our gratitude for your never-ending support here at The Wharf.

And don’t worry – we promise 2018 will bring just as much action, color, and sound in high definition to the table as 2017 did! Hold on to your seats, it’s bound to be another incredible ride.

Now, go ahead and browse through an abridged collection of this past year’s gems.

Cheers and Happy New Year!
