Bayfest on Pine Ave was a blast last Saturday! The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce staff and volunteers were out on Pine Ave setting up before the sun came up – glad I didn’t have to be out there that early! We made our vacation rental guest aware of the event earlier in the week and also gave them a Bayfest 2017 booklet when the arrived! We love to take great care of our vacation rental guest and keep them informed of all the fun events going on on Anna Maria Island!
A group of us from Duncan Real Estate met at the office at 10:30, made mimosas and headed out to the crowd to hand out Duncan Real Estate fans! When we first started, there was an excellent breeze. It was so pleasant to walk Pine Ave and see all of the fancy vehicles in the car show, over 80 vendors set up with cool items, food vendors that made the street smell so yummy and the big band stage at the very end of Pine Ave. I was nervous as folks didn’t really need a fan to keep them cool because the weather was so nice. BUT, about 30 minutes later, the breeze died down and the heat started to set in. Good thing for us as the fans became a huge hit! We handed out 500 fans in about an hour and a half. Note to self for next years order – order at least 1,000 as the Bayfest goes until 9:00 PM and I am sure many more folks would have loved to been a “fan” of Duncan Real Estate in the middle of the afternoon!
A big thank you to the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce! They always do such a fantastic job on this event and it runs so smoothly. We truly live in paradise with not only the best gulf beaches and sunsets but so many fun things to do on Anna Maria! Team Duncan is looking forward to Bayfest 2018!
