Blast Off to 2017!


Welcome in the new year at the beach! Party at the Beach Blast Off from 4-10 on December 31.  That’s right – this celebration ends before midnight, which makes it perfect for those of us who don’t stay up late anymore!

Beach Blast Off 2017 features food and entertainment, and culminates with a fantastic fireworks display.  This is a free event held by the City of St Augustine Beach.  It’s all happening at the pier.

If you want to end 2016 adventurously, how about a turn on the mechanical bull? Or commemorate the occasion in the photo booth.  Thirty food vendors will line up to feed you.  Beer, wine, and champagne will be available.  And in the Comfort Zone, a 65-inch TV will be showing nonstop sports.

Beach 105.5, St Augustine’s Everything Radio Station, will be spinning the hits from the pier from 4-5:30.  And then a lineup of popular local bands will be bringing back the 1980s! You know, for auld lang syne.

Old Enough to Know Better will play from 5:30 – 6:30, Oh No! The Band, will perform from 6:30 – 7:30, and the Prom Kings will be onstage from 7:30 – 8:30.

And then, fireworks!  From 8:30 – 9:00, Beach Blast Off will hold a huge fireworks display.  Sit in the sand or watch from the pier and pavilion as the colors burst and pinwheel over the ocean.

The night will wind up with the antics of Papercutt, St Augustine’s own glam rock tribute band.  Expect mullets.  And a keytar.

And when your night is over, come back to Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast to begin the first moments of 2017 in peace.  Perhaps for you, that means a glass of merlot on the veranda or a cookie and cup of decaf in the parlor in your PJs.  Either way, you’ll end 2016 in a comfortable bed and begin 2017 with a lavish breakfast.  At Carriage Way Bed & Breakfast, we’ll give you reason to celebrate.
