Panama City is celebrating the start of summer with their annual sock burning event at the St. Andrews Marina on Saturday, April 14. Residents and visitors alike bring their own socks to the marina be strung up around the bay and then burned in a porcelain bathtub right by the water as a symbolic end to winter and start to flip flop season.
St. Andrews' Sock Burn coincides with the 21st annual Blessing of the Fleet and fish fry. Food will be served starting at 11 a.m. followed by the Blessing of the Fleet at noon and then the Burning of the Socks directly after.
Funds from this event will benefit Second Chance of Northwest Florida, a local charity that provides services to survivors of brain injury in the area.
