And remember, if you aren’t able to get to one of our events, stop by one of our five offices and pick up a free American flag. We love to see that flag wave!

apple pie June 29, 10 AM – 1 PM:  NICEVILLE

We know it’s tough when July 4 lands mid-week. Not everyone gets the day off. So, our Niceville office is hosting its 1st Annual All-American Day the Saturday before Independence Day.  Join Team Niceville as they celebrate what makes Niceville – and America – a nice place to live.  What’s more American than Apple pie? Mayor Helen Wise joins our panel of judges in a Pie Tasting. We have also scheduled a Pet Parade and a Niceville Fire Department Fire Engine/Rescue Boat display. Kids will enjoy the face painting and bouncy house. There will be giveaways, hot dogs, snow cones and popcorn. And, of course, we will have flags to give out. See you there!
