Fiesta of Five Flags 2017 Events

Posted on: April 11th, 2017 by miranda

Welcome to Fiesta!

 

The Fiesta of Five Flags is an annual celebration of the founding of Pensacola. In 1559, Spanish Conquistador, Don Tristan de Luna, established Pensacola as the first European settlement in the United States. Since that time five different flags have flown over the City: Spanish, French, British, Confederate, and American. This 10-day festival is one of the oldest and largest heritage festivals in the State of Florida. With events designed to appeal to all ages and interests, Fiesta has always been a significant celebration for the Pensacola Bay Area.

  • June 3, 2017

    Spanish explorer Don Tristan de Luna led a voyage to America in 1559. He exhibited deep faith in something higher than himself in leading this group.

  • June 8, 2017

    The 2017 Fiesta All Krewe Ball will be held on Thursday, June 8 at the Hadji Shrine Temple beginning at 7 p.m.

  • June 9, 2017

    Don Tristan DeLuna, Pensacola’s first citizen, is remembered each year during the Fiesta of Five Flags celebration.

  • September 29, 2017 to October 1, 2017

Connecting the Pieces Gala- April 27th

Posted on: April 11th, 2017 by miranda

Connecting the Pieces in 2017

Autism Pensacola is excited to announce this year’s Connecting the Pieces gala will be hosted by a team of incredible friends—Grover & Jill Robinson and Dr. Brett & Rocky Parra. The Robinsons and Parras have selected the theme “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” for this year’s event.

Brett Parra is a former API board member and Rocky is a current board member. Grover Robinson is County Commissioner for Escambia County, District 4. Jill is a teacher at Episcopal Day School. The couples have been friends for years. Their children have gone to school together over the years, and the families vacation together. The couples have also volunteered together on a number of projects.

The Robinsons & Parras have been working diligently since last fall to make this a well-received and fun affair. Through their many friends, the hosts are working to secure sponsors, collect auction items, and plan the menu for the evening. Their volunteer committees are endeavoring to make this both a festive and successful gala.

Rocky said, “We attended our first API gala eight years ago, right after receiving our son’s diagnosis. We made great connections there and began new friendships that still sustain us today. Our circle of friends from ‘before autism’ also rallied around us and welcomed autism into their lives, their homes, and holiday celebrations. We are so grateful to honor them by working with Autism Pensacola to continue to increase understanding and acceptance in our community.”

The annual “Connecting the Pieces” Gala is the major fundraiser that allows API to address the varied needs of both the local individuals on the autism spectrum and their families, as well as increasing awareness to make our community a safer and more accepting place.  All proceeds from the gala directly support local programs, including the nationally recognized Kids for Camp summer learning lab. The 14th annual “Connecting the Pieces” gala will be held on Thursday, April 27, at the Sanders Beach-Corrine Jones Resource Center. For more information, click here!
