Locals and visitors will take advantage of FREE Live Music featuring singer-songwriters Troy Martin and Robert Mayhall, refreshments, and numerous door prizes for attendees (20-plus). Signed Books and other prizes will be drawn for those in attendance.

The Beach Store, formerly “Key Necessities” is less than one mile east of Flora-Bama and is the go-to place for swimwear for youth, teen and adult sizes.  Need shades or a hat? The Beach Store has what you need.  Locally-owned and run by Ilan Dahan of The Perdido Key Trading Company, The Beach Store hopes to serve the vacationing beach community and their specific needs.

Chris Warner, a resident of Perdido Key, Florida, and author of five books about the noted haunt on the Alabama-Florida Line, has lifted from the scribbled walls of the iconic pump house a collection of over 500 brief, brilliant bursts of life…“If the Walls Could Talk.”  Warner has also authored “Bushwhacked at the Flora-Bama,” (History of Flora-Bama with Joe Gilchrist), “Saved at the Alabama-Florida Line” (Nominated: Best Piece of Fiction by an Alabama Author, Alabama Library Association, 2017), “They Met at the Alabama-Florida Line” (Novel number two) and “Food N’ Fun at the Flora-Bama” (cookbook).

Warner will have his Flora-Bama books and several others available for signature at the signing.
