Blessing of the Fleet
The Fleet Blessing begins May 9 with an outdoor Ascension Day service in front of the Destin Fishermen's Co-op. After the service, Destin pastors process to the docks to bless the passing vessels.

All festivities are located behind Fishermen's Wharf Restaurant.
Everyone is invited to participate in the service, watch the Blessing, and enjoy the fish fry. Participation in the boat line-up is limited to those who make their living from the sea. For more information, call Immanuel Anglican Church at 837-6324.
