As a community foundation and
for 56 years, the annual Blessing of the Destin Fishing Fleet takes place
in the Destin harbor on Ascension Day
(Thursday, May 29th). On this
day, local pastors gather to bless charter fishing boats and others who
earn their living from the sea, for safe passage
and bountiful catches.
Today, the Blessing of the Fleet has grown along with the community and
its businesses becoming a week-long celebration
starting Sunday, May 25th
through Saturday, May 31st Included in this annual event is also the
Blessing of the Marketplace taking place on Wednesday,
May 28th. This
year, the overall event celebrates it’s 11th year!
