Tourism Plans

As Tropical Storm Alberto crosses over Florida, you would think hurricane season was the main focus of the Panama City Beach Tourist Development Council.

But the TDC is also looking forward to another summer and fall season full of events.

In August, powerboat racing comes back to Panama City Beach. Last year offshore powerboat racing returned after a 12-year hiatus.

But that's just the first of a number of big events coming to the beach. There's the Indian Summer Festival in October and a major car show coming in November.

The TDC has also started to prepare for Spring Break 2007 by working on promotions, contacting music groups and marketing companies.
