Pensacola Pelican Drop

New Years in a New Place

Ah today is a new day! Its new years day and I was lucky enough to spend it with my hubby, two of my sisters and a few new friends. Since the boys had to be back on base by 12, our night was cut a little short of course, but I wasn't about to complain. I am just so happy that I got to spend it with him... the one I love.

Since we didn't have all night we decided not to do anything crazy or wild way out of town. A few days ago we heard about this thing going on in town called the Pelican drop. We checked it out online and seemed pretty chill... it was a street festival with a count down at midnight with a pelican drop. So we went!

It was right in the heart of downtown and they blocked off three of the main streets, which lead to many restaurants and local bars. There were plenty of street vendors and many many people crowded around the small stages for contests, karaoke, magic shows and more.

This is the place where I first tasted alligator... alligator on a stick. It was actually more tasty than I had thought it would be. So most of the night we wandered the streets in and out of bars and checking out the vendors on the sidewalks, until time came to take them home.
