Highway 98 Traffic Shift
East and westbound U.S. 98 travel lanes will be shifted to the south between Airport Road and Henderson Beach State Park the week of Sunday, Nov. 5. Once the new traffic pattern is in place, crews will begin sidewalk and roadway construction on the north side of U.S. 98. When work is complete, traffic will be shifted to the north to allow for construction of the south side of the highway.

Bourbon at the Bay
On Nov. 9, kick off your holiday season - and shopping - in style with the 5th Annual Bourbon at the Bay presented by Harrison Sale McCloy. Sample bourbon, scotch, and champagne, try your luck in the wine pull, and bid on your choice of gifts, trips, and more in the silent auction.

The event will be held at Regatta Bay Golf and Yacht Club from 5:30 - 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for $40 per person, which includes a commemorative tasting glass for the first 200 people through the door. Also, The Melting Pot will sample its bourbon pecan dark chocolate fondue, and local distiller Timber Creek Distilling will showcase its Florida Whiskey and Florida Rye.

Thank you to our sponsors!
