Blessing of the Fleet, Fish Fry & Burning of the Socks

Bless the Fleet, and Free Your Feet! The annual Blessing of the Fleet, Fish Fry & Burning of the Socks is back.

This is the day all locals look forward to, and all are welcome to come see why. Panama City says farewell to the chilly weather and burns socks to symbolize the start of the warmer seasons and the blessing of safe travels for all the maritime vessels in the St. Andrews Bay.

The Fleet Blessing, of course, is a traditional maritime event to commemorate those who were lost at sea and ask God’s blessing for those who make their living from the sea. The Fish Fry will serve the bounty of the sea from 10am–3pm, while supplies last. Processional of water vessels starts at 12noon, with Sock Burning event to follow. Vendors will be on site, 9am-5pm.  Proceeds benefit Second Chance of Northwest Florida, a local non-profit organization that provides services to brain injury survivors and their family in the community.
