Labor Day Weekend on Amelia Island

What a fabulous start to the Labor Day weekend.  As they do every First Friday of the month, locals and tourists mingled at the Sounds on Centre concert - this month featuring the Instant Groove band - under perfect late summer cloudless skies.  This was the second to the last of the series, wrapping up next month with the kick-off for the Jazz Festival.  If anyone's got any energy left tomorrow, they can run in the 5K Turtle Trot (for the benefit of the sea turtles) or head out to the final Sun Splash reggae festival of the season.  If it seems like our music is ending for the year, it's not; it's just that some of the current monthly events are being replaced with other regular events.  We've still got the Fall Arts Festival and the Jazz Festival at the beginning of October, the Cruizers Car show, the Atlantic Coast Triathalon, the Petanque America Open, the Holiday Tour of Homes and - most importantly - the Holiday Cookie Tour of Inns.  I'll be bringing you more information about these events in the coming weeks.  Suffice it to say, the fall is a great time to be on the island.
