GULF COUNTY, Fla. (December 2015) – This mission showcased a unique feature and event in Gulf County. We have two time zones in our county and it also borders another time zone in Mexico Beach. Because of this we host a unique New Year's Eve event that let's guests ring in the New Year twice! We shuttle them across time zones to participating venues and even have two fireworks shows. It all kicks off New Year's Eve day with a family scavenger hunt to collect party favors. Journalists and their families on this visit got to experience the event as well as other aspects of the area. There was horseback riding on the beach, a bonfire cookout and the traditional southern New Year's Day meal!
