If you are looking for something to do this weekend on Anna Maria Island, the title of the event says it all! Take the free trolley and head to Bradenton Beach to the historically festive Bridge Street for Blues, Brews, and BBQ! Bridge Street will be closed from 11am- 10 pm to accommodate local craft vendors lining the streets from beach to bay offering everything from jewelry to specialty culinary delights! With prize money at stake, a heated competition for the best local BBQ between restaurants will take place between 2pm-6pm.
Sarasota band, AJ and The Automatics, will be playing Blues, Funk, & Jazz, music from 7-10pm. A powerful force of nature on stage, Anthony J. was born in San Antonio TX, moved to Houston as a kid and started singing in church, where he realized that he had a voice. If you have not heard AJ and The Automatics you won’t want to miss this event. Also hitting the stage will be the Lauren Mitchell Band, RJ Howson and Friends, Kara Nally Band, and Kettle of Fish.
There will be a VIP section with preferred seating under a tent which includes tickets for the BBQ contest, top shelf alcohol and beer, and a meal from the Bridge Street Bistro.
