Anna Maria Island is home to many longstanding traditions. The Bayfest Festival, held each October, is one of them. The 16th Annual Bayfest music, crafts and food festival was the perfect place for island residents and visitors alike to take advantage of the first signs of fall in the Sunshine State. Hundreds of people attended the family friendly festival to enjoy entertainment for all ages and interests. A mix of over 100 classic and muscle cars, live music, great food from more than 12 restaurants and original arts and crafts made by local artists filled Pine Avenue for 12 hours on October 15th . There was even a Kid Zone, featuring a bounce house and fun & games for childrenof all ages to ensure a great time for every member of the family!
