Madonnaro Italian Street Painting

Italy on the Gulf?  See an Italian tradition- street painting called “Madonnari” because the subject was typically the Madonna. Today subjects are unlimited, and so is the imagination! You won’t believe your eyes-   Oct 15- 16th  Located in Downtown Panama City at the Visual Arts Center.

Barkiní on the Bay, Bay Point Marina

The Humane Society of Bay County presents the Sixth Annual Barkiní on the Bay –  fun for you and your pup! Like a dog show, but better – you’ll be enjoying the ambience of Bay Point Marina.
