Plenty of things are happening throughout the South Walton and 30A area. Some of the top headlines provide a look into the unique fun of the area. Here's what has been in the news lately.

30A Throwdown Cook-off at Pandora's

Pandora's Steakhouse in Grayton Beach will provide a place for the 30A Throwdown Cook-off on September 29th. This will be a Seafood Throwdown and will start at 2pm. Live Music from HOR!ZON, Khris Roya and Eric Vogel will be provided, along with plenty of fun. Tickets are $35, which includes all the music, dinner with shrimp, red snapper and more, door prizes and the opportunity to judge the cook-off.

Reopening 30A at Big Redfish Lake

This part of 30A, which has been closed since the July 4th weekend, has now reopened. It had collapsed in August, due to the large amounts of rain the area received. Crews have been working hard to repair the road and get it reopened for many weeks.

Moving forward, the county will obtain the permits necessary to build a bridge in this area. This may take a few months or longer, but once the permits are established, construction will start.

South Walton Welcomes the African Children's Choir

As the African Children's Choir tours the South Walton area, residents have the opportunity to see a performance. This group brings angelic voices to the area in order to raise money for their nonprofit relieve organization. Children range from seven to ten years of ages and will travel throughout the United States and other countries for at least one full year.

Every child within the choir comes from a poor family in Uganda and can benefit from this tour. Admission to the performances is free, but they do accept offerings for the continuing education of the choir and to help support their organization.

These are just a few of the things making headlines in the South Walton area. Many other things are happening and providing good news across the Emerald Coast.
