Summer Events Worth Getting Into A Routine For

Sometimes the things that make summer summer—like longer days and rising temperatures—are also the things that make it hard to get through. But luckily for us locals, there are tons of routine-worthy events worth getting out of the house for.

And we know the word routine doesn’t exactly scream summer fun, but we think it can, especially when the routine in question involves things like seeing a ballgame or taking in live music with a Gulf view. That’s why we are encouraging you to get into a routine this summer—a routine centered around some of the regularly scheduled events that are easy to take for granted or forget about because they happen so often.

—Musical Nights—
Whether it’s a date night or a family outing, these two live music series create the perfect opportunity for a relaxing summer routine.

Beach Vibes
Pensacola Beach’s popular outdoor concert series Bands on the Beach is already in full swing this season, with a full roster of music every Tuesday evening all summer long and well into the fall too.

Located at the Gulfside Pavilion, the series features regional artists performing weekly through the last week of October.

—Have A Ball—
Blue Wahoos games aren’t exactly on a set weekly schedule, but the daily promotions are. So all you have to do to make a summer routine for yourself is pick a favorite day and mark your calendar for the remaining home games that fall on it. Our vote is Tuesday—because who doesn’t love tacos?

Day By Day
Here’s a basic rundown of this season’s regular promotions:

Military Monday
Active and retired military get $1 off tickets every Monday. The Wahoos have also teamed up with First Command Financial Services for special military recognitions, American flag presentation and on-field activities throughout the season.

Tap and Taco Tuesday
In addition to beer and taco pairings, Tuesday night games will feature acoustic music and local artwork. The “Fat Tuesday” all-you-can-eat buffet promo will be back, too—on the Winn Dixie party deck in partnership with Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Wahoo Wednesday
Wednesdays are all about theme nights at the ballpark, so be on the lookout for fun announcements throughout the season, like Star Wars night. The Wahoos will also be putting on a weekly Wednesday fireworks.

Thirsty Thursday
Because the only thing better than a ballgame is a ballgame with drink specials.

Fantastic Friday
Be one of the first 2,000 fans at the ballpark on Fridays to get special edition Wahoos giveaway items.

Fireworks Saturday
Win or lose, the Wahoos celebrate every Saturday night with post-game fireworks.

Family Sunday
McDonald’s is once again sponsoring Family Sundays at the ballpark, which includes base running for kids and family toss every week.
