Our visits to Seabreeze Jazz Festival are annual. There have been many improvements made to the Aaron Bessant Park and each year brings more pleasure to our visits.

Have seen 2 Mardi gras free concerts here and enjoyed them both. This year it featured Aaron Neville and was excellent. Take your own chair or blanket if you want to be comfy watching the show.

Great park. Great location. The Emerald Coast Cruizin' was a great show. Restrooms were not kept clean, but there was a large crowd.
