The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk, Nov. 6, 2010

Last month I told you about opens in a new windowThe Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010. Probably the world’s largest beach rally, all 825 miles of the Sunshine State’s beaches will be walked and photographed the same morning to show the world how fantastic the beaches are. I’m happy to share more information about the event.

The County Host will contact you and assign your one mile stretch of beach in which you’ll be responsible for walking and photographing. You are also responsible for uploading at least one photo by 11 a.m. on Nov. 6 to VISIT FLORIDA’s Share a Little Sunshine website.

All photos will be displayed at opens in a new and voters will vote for their fave Florida beach mile.

But wait, there’s more…voters will be entered to win $5,000 and a Mazda Miata so they can zip around Florida to see the clean beaches firsthand. Votes need to be cast by Dec. 6, 2010.
