Click here to search our featured Jacksonville/St Augustine homes for saleWhy wait til Halloween to enjoy a fun Fall event like the 2015 St Augustine Corn Maze?  Located just 22 minutes southwest of our St Augustine community, Sykes & Cooper Farms puts on quite a show!  The farm is nine acres of family-friendly fun.  One corn maze just won’t due.  Oh no.  Even though the main maze is a thing of beauty, the wee ones might feel a little intimidated.  That’s why Sykes & Cooper created the very kid-friendly Jack and the Cornstalk maze just for them.

The 2015 St Augustine Corn Maze is not the only treat you’ll find in the farm’s bag of tricks.  Have fun on the old fashioned hayride or hop aboard the cow train.  Visit with Jack, quite possibly the loudest braying donkey you’ll ever meet.  Kids will enjoy the playground that includes fun activities like the corn box, tube slide and spider web.  The duck races are a favorite.  And, since this is a working farm, you’ll be able to see plenty of farm animals roaming around.

Is it too early to pick up a pumpkin?  No way!  As you long as you store them between 50-55F, an uncarved pumpkin can last up to four months.  Pick up a few for fun Fall decorations at the 2015 St Augustine Corn Maze.

Have you ever been to a corn maze before?  Which ones?  Tell me all about your experience in the comments below.

St Augustine Talk Like a Pirate Weekend 2015

For St Augustine Talk Like a Pirate Weekend 2015, X marks the spot for a great time.  In this case, the “X” in question is the oldest city in the country: St Augustine.  Get this party started on Friday night with a full on pirate dinner and fashion show.  For $40, guests will dine on a fabulous buffet created by the talented chefs at the Colonial Quarter.  Entertainment hits the air (the Fly By Pirates) as well as land (Mayhem Magnificent).  See the latest in pirate fashions  courtesy of The Pirate Store and Anastasia Designs.  Proceeds from the dinner will directly benefit the St Francis House Shelter.  So it’s, dinner and a show for a wonderful cause!

Click here to search our featured Jacksonville/St Augustine homes for saleSaturday starts St Augustine Talk Like a Pirate Weekend 2015 off with a hunt and ends with a crawl.  Find the not-so-buried treasure at the Pirate and Treasure Museum from 11am to 4pm.  Take the hunt to the water on the Black Raven pirate ship (877-578-5050 for reservations) at 2:15pm.  After the family-friendly fun, end the day with the adults only St George St Poker Pub Crawl from 7pm to 10pm.

Miniature golf may not be the first thing that comes to mind when think of pirates.  But Bayfront Mini-Golf thinks it should be.  That’s because you can golf with pirates on Sunday from 11am to 1pm.  Then, if you weren’t able to book your Treasure Hunt Cruise on the Black Raven Saturday, you have another chance at 2:15pm on Sunday.

What “pirate words” or phrases will you be using this weekend?  Walk the plank.  Ahoy, matey.  Arrrrrr!  Give me your pirate twist on regular English words in the comments below.  Be as creative is as possible.  I want to work them into my vernacular this weekend.

2015 St Augustine Give Kids the World Fundraiser

Click here to search our featured Jacksonville/St Augustine homes for saleThe Holiday Isle Oceanfront Resort will be hosting the 2015 St Augustine Give Kids the World Fundraiser poolside this Saturday, August 29th.  There will be live and silent auctions carried on throughout the day.  Several local businesses and organizations have generously donated some amazing prizes to auction off.  Sparky the Clown will visit with guests.  The Jacksonville Men’s Chorus and MC Roger Ramsey will both perform live.  Commemorate the day with a crazy photo in the photo booth.  Hot dogs, burgers and other refreshments will be available for purchase as well.

Proceeds from the 2015 St Augustine Give Kids the World Fundraiser will directly benefit the Give Kids the World Village.  The Village was begun because it took too long for one man to help accommodate a terminally ill child’s wish to visit Orlando theme parks.  She passed away before this hotelier could coordinate with other hoteliers in the area.  Vowing that no other child would have to wait for their wishes to be granted, Henri Landwirth came up with the idea of the Give Kids the World Village.  Today, the Village sits on 70 acres that contain 144 villas for sick children and their families.  The entire park was created with special needs children in mind.

Do you know of a child that could benefit from the Village?  Let us know in the comments below.  Then make plans to visit the 2015 St Augustine Give Kids the World Fundraiser on Saturday.  Your help will do wonders.

2015 St Augustine Gamble Jam

Click here to search our featured Jacksonville/St Augustine homes for saleThe 2015 St Augustine Gamble Jam is meant to honor the memory of James Gamble Rogers IV.  A Florida Artists Hall of Fame inductee, Rogers was a talented folk musician and storyteller.  The subject of most of his stories and songs were the beloved people and places in a fictional county in Florida.  That is how the namesake of Gamble Rogers Memorial State Park became the honorary godfather of the 2015 St Augustine Gamble Jam.

On the second and fourth Friday of every month this year, musicians from all over the St Augustine community gather together for an impromptu jam session.  It doesn’t matter what your skill levels is: beginner, intermediate or advanced.  Everyone is welcome to bring in their instrument of choice to rock out at the 2015 St Augustine Gamble Jam.  Don’t play an instrument?  That’s OK.  Every musician loves an audience.  You can watch and encourage from the sidelines.

Admission to the 2015 St Augustine Gamble Jam is absolutely free.  You only have to pay park admission, which is $5 per carload (2-8 people), $4 for a single occupant vehicle and $2 per pedestrian or anyone on a bicycle.  Make sure you bring a chair so you can listen in comfort.  Dancing is highly encouraged.

Do you play an instrument?  Which one?  How long?  I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
