    You can help! Don’t forget to tell all your friends and customers about the great SPOTLIGHT ON Bringing More Fun & More Visitors to As the fall months come to a close, Visit Panama City Beach is busy making sure there’s plenty of fun in store for winter visitors. With revenue from a tourist development tax from overnight lodging we are able to fund a variety of marketing and tourist development activities, encouraging more frequent visits and longer stays. This keeps our local economy humming through the cooler months. Many of us remember when the beach was a quiet, empty place during the winter weeks. But times have changed. We have an entire lineup to keep winter residents coming back again and again. With the New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop, Senior Prom and the PCB Mardi Gras & Music Festival, we’re dedicated to making Panama City Beach a Real. Fun. Beach. year round! winter fun waiting to be discovered in Panama City Beach. For more info and events, visit: www.visitpanamacitybeach.com/events visitpanamacitybeach.com • 800.PCBEACH
