Baytowne Memorial Day Weekend Celebration

The Village of Baytowne Wharf is celebrating with style with two nights of family-friendly events.

The Beach

Historic 30A is all about the beach. Swim, sunbathe, take a walk or run, spread out a blanket and plant an umbrella for a Memorial Day beach picnic, or to sit and read while the waves provide the background noise.
