This festival began as a block party for the locals and fishermen when John Banyas, 4th generation fisherman and the owner of Cortez Bait & Seafood, Inc. wanted to give the fishermen a party to kick off stone crab season. Over the last number of years it has grown exponentially; last year there were close to 20,000 people in attendance.
This years festival will benefit the Manatee Chapter of Fishing for Freedom and and the children of Port St. Joe, the sister city of Cortez. Who is Fishing for Freedom and what do they do? Fishing for Freedom is a growing organization of volunteer citizens dedicated to preserving our constitutions, the environment, economy and citizen’s rights through responsible scientific, ecological and biological management. The local chapter spends much of their time fighting against net bans and other legislation that make it extremely difficult for commercial fishermen to do their jobs and make a living. They also organize and participate in rallies and Coastal Cleanup events right here in Manatee County.
When you arrive or before leaving the festival, you might like to wander around the charming village of Cortez. Cortez is the oldest active fishing village in Florida and a great place to watch the local fishermen as they unload their daily catch. Or, take a walk through the historic village and visit the old fish houses and a boat yard. Admire some beach bungalows and charming cottages along the way with views of the Cortez water with pelicans, herons and egrets gathering nearby.
Enjoy your day!

ANNA MARIA ISLAND, ISLAND PLAYERS “BAGGAGE” November 2018

Get your tickets before they’re sold out!
 
As you enjoy your accommodations with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217 we think you will also enjoy an evening at this local theatre. You will find several excellent restaurants and dessert shops within walking distance of the theatre for dining before or after the show. Food and beverages not allowed in the theatre.
The Island Players community theatre is a beautifully maintained little theatre with a long history on Anna Maria Island. The historic building was originally the William H. Gillette family home in Parrish and around 1912 was brought by barge down the Manatee River and relocated to its present site on Gulf Drive in Anna Maria. Prior to it becoming “The Island Community Theatre” it was used as a school classroom, the centre of municipal affairs, a church for different religious denominations, a tourist information center, the Women’s Club meeting place and Anna Maria Garden Club, and as a service club during World War II. Until the mid 1970s the Anna Maria City Commission held its meetings here and it was around this time when some big changes took place. Damage in the building was found and being a historical landmark the maintenance and repair was too costly for the city. As luck would have it the Island Players group was looking to build their own theatre and an arrangement was made with the city. The Island Players repaired the building along with some major renovations including stage, installation of 137 seats and carpeting. To this day continue to maintain and preserve it. Today the theatre offers comfortable seating, lots of leg room and viewing with no obstructions. We are sure you will have a fun night out at this long established theatre, with a stage production presented by The Island Players. Anna Maria Island residents and visitors are fortunate to have this dedicated organization, The Island Players, founded in 1949, provide artistic experiences to us and our surrounding communities. You will find staff and volunteers from the box office to the stage manager and actors clearly love what they do and it shows. The productions are always well done with great performances by talented local actors giving you, their audience, a most enjoyable theatre experience.

The Island Players group kicked off its 70th season in September of this year.
Don’t miss their next performance November 8 – November 18, 2018 BAGGAGE by Sam Bobrick. Directed by James Thaggard.
Baggage is a comedy that illustrates what happens when two difficult single people, Phyllis and Bradley, meet due to confusion over the ownership of a suitcase. Their accidental swap of suitcases causes a disagreeable meeting and moves on to a most unlikely friendship. This light hearted play is threaded with humour as the contents of the case are revealed and the two characters get to know each other. While these two might be the opposite of all that is easy for everyone else, will these complex singles turn out to be a perfect match?

New Non-Stop Routes from LONDON UK & HAMILTON, Ontario, CANADA to TAMPA

Travelling will be easier (and less expensive) for our guests from LONDON UK & HAMILTON, Ontario, CANADA as Tampa International Airport announces new non-stop routes and a new carrier.
For our London guests, the drive from Tampa International Airport to Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217 is 1 hour verses 3 hours to Orlando International Airport. That 2 hours in time savings means you have already been to the supermarket, arrived at your condo, loaded up the refrigerator, unpacked and are now heading to the beach before your flight has even landed in Orlando.
TPA_Airport_anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
As Tampa International Airport recently announced a new, non-stop flight from Tampa to London on Norwegian Airlines we shouted “hooray! Beginning October 31, the direct route from Tampa Airport to London’s Gatwick Airport will operate twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Norwegian flights will fly out of Tampa at 10:50 p.m. Wednesdays, arriving in London at 10:45 a.m. Thursdays. On Saturdays, flights will leave at 10 p.m. with arrival in London at 9:55 a.m. Sundays. From London, the flights will leave Wednesdays at 2:55 p.m. to arrive in Tampa at 8:35 p.m., and on Saturdays at 2:05 p.m. to arrive in Tampa at 7:45 p.m.
Norwegian-Air-787-anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
Norwegian Airlines boasts it is the world’s sixth largest low cost airline and is a great choice for budget conscious traveller looking for international flights. British Airways already flies daily between Tampa and Gatwick so now passengers will have a choice of two nonstop airlines to London. As of today’s date, I checked for a Tampa to London round trip on the same days in November and found Norwegian’s introductory air fares much lower on the outbound and return flights than on British Airways. Check for yourself, bookings are available online at Norwegian’s web site with some introductory one-way economy fares available.
swoop-airline-anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
Tampa International Airport is also offering new nonstop flights to Canada via a new carrier, Swoop. As a subsidiary of West Jet, Canada’s second largest airline, Swoop, was formed in June of this year and is Canada’s first true ultra-low-cost carrier. Swoop announced in August its entrance into the United States market with five new international flight routes, including one for Tampa and one to Orlando. It began October 20 offering nonstop flights between Tampa, Florida and Hamilton, Ontario. The new routes are offered in three weekly services.
swoop-airline-anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
As Canadians know, it is expensive for airlines to operate out of Toronto, therefore making air travel out of reach for some. For many people that have been driving to Buffalo, New York looking for less expensive airfare (yes we are among those) flying out of Hamilton is a great option and welcome news. Hamilton is such a great location, easy to reach from in or around the greater Toronto area. According to the director of research at the Tampa International Airport, working with Swoop has resulted in lower fares and greater competition which in the end benefits passengers. Today, I checked flights from Hamilton to Tampa and got unbelievable one-way fares of $119 Canadian dollars including taxes! Check out their low fares at flyscoop.com.

Happy Halloween! From: Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals, Bradenton Beach, Florida

Anyone can enjoy Halloween. It is not just for kids, adults can have fun too. For me, Halloween is more than dressing up, it’s about getting into the spirit of Halloween.
What’s your favourite part? Costume parties, telling ghost stories, watching scary movies?
Halloween-anna-maria-island-condo-rentals
Here are the things I love about Halloween —
  • Being creative, you can dress up and be anyone/anything you want to be.
  • Halloween decorations are not as complicated as other holidays and typically are not overly expensive.
  • Halloween celebrates excess sugar. It’s all about consuming special treats and who doesn’t like to indulge their sweet teeth?
  • It’s the only day of the year we allow and encourage our kids to talk to strangers. They knock on the doors of people they don’t know, shout “trick-or-treat” and expect to get a treat in return.
  • Halloween music is the best. Who doesn’t love Michael Jackson’s Thriller, The Monster Mash, The Rocky Horror Picture Show The Time Warp, Ghostbuster Theme Song, The Addams Family Theme Song, Rockwell Somebody’s Watching Me, Ding Dong The Witch is Dead?
  • You don’t have to worry about what to get someone for Halloween. Forget about gift planning, gift-wrapping, and gift returns. Buy some candy to hand out (or eat yourself) and everyone is happy.
  • I think the real beauty of Halloween is, there are no age restrictions and it is completely voluntary.
With Halloween just around the corner what are you going to do? You can prepare to watch your favorite horror movies and featured TV shows. As well, you might consider these things to do while vacationing with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals.
