“Make Mother’s Day 2019 a special weekend,” O’Hara told local reporters.  “We have specifically ordered up the sun with no rain in the forecast.”

“This Vilano Beach Main Street event includes music, arts and crafts, two dynamic bands, suds and sun overlooking the ocean and is a great summer time getaway at the beach,” Boyd said. “In addition to planned performances from great featured bands, PEACH LIFE and NOT QUITE DEAD, there will be surprise special appearances hosted at the east end of Vilano Road.”

Vilano Beach Main Street, Inc. and North Shores Improvement Association, Inc. invite you to taste a growing list of the best of St. Augustine’s area restaurants while you visit for the weekend.  Out of town visitors will want to ask our hotels about the weekend package stays available for our special Mother’s Day event.
