Songwriters' Fest attracts crowds to area

The FRL marketing team promoted the Blast on the Bay in magazines throughout the panhandle and Dover commended event organizer Jason Bogan for coordinating the annual festival.

“It’s smart to capitalize on a weekend that could be a dead one,” said Dover. “The season trails off and people don’t always have a reason to come here.”

Dover said that in past years, Florida was receiving around 82 million visitors a year, but as Governor Scott pushed tourism, there was an increase to 90 million visitors last year.

“No doubt, some of them are coming to Gulf County,” said Dover. “Governor Scott has been amazing to tourism.”
