The Amelia Cruizer’s of Fernandina Beach Florida presents it’s 16 th Annual 8-Flags Car Show which will be held on October 20th 2012!
Located in the historic district of Fernandina Beach, FL this car show is one of the best in the area. Over 250 classics, in a fantastic location with good food and music. And lots of shade!
What a great opportunity to stay at the Williams House – All of this just a few blocks from us! The men can look at cars while the women can explore the many shops downtown – or vice versa!
Just a couple blocks from the Williams house so you can easily stroll back to the Inn for that long awaited nap with time to awaken for the wine hour and continue with your island getaway!
- July 4 parade – Fernandina Beach
The July 4th holiday yielded lots of activity on Fernandina Beach including an event with specialty vehicles, games and live band at Central Park during the early hours. In the evening, a traditional parade with police, fireman, military and citizens was held. Later the same day, a free concert was held down by the waterfront and fireworks followed at 9:30 pm. It was fairly crowded on the Island with lot’s of folks enjoying the shops, restaurants, Fort Clinch (with reenac tments) and lot’s of local activities. We were full at the Williams House and in fact July in total was one of our busier months this year. We also had a small wedding on the Holiday weekend which we will cover later in another blog.
We always love to see guests return to the Williams House and the Goffs and Williams returned for Shimp Fest this year to establish a new record for guest continuity. It is the sixteenth year they have returned and stayed at the Williams House for this event. Same rooms each year….if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. And, of course already slated to be back next year in the same rooms for the 17th time! They are of course the dream guest for every innkeeper that hopes to create loyalty and enjoy the return of familiar faces and friends. They even share wine with us when we have a moment to sit and catch up. We also enjoy seeing their “treaure finds” from days searching the shrimp festival for that perfect item or piece of art. We look forward to next year already!
