2012 Tybee Island Beach Bum Parade
Today at 6 p.m., Tybee Island will feature a parade and a massive island-wide water fight. Spectators lined up along the parade route on Butler Avenue will be armed with squirt guns and hoses. Just know the parade participants on floats will be fully armed, too! Don’t miss this family-friendly water fight, which has been a true Tybee Island tradition since 1987. The 2012 Beach Bum Parade Royal Family includes Grand Marshal Mike Hosti, Big Kahuna Carl Looper and Queen Wanda Stevenson.
THE RULES: Water balloons, buckets and pressure washers are prohibited and considered dangerous. No ice water. Restrict your targets to parade participants and on-lookers only. Do not attempt to aim your hose or water gun at a police officer. Residents and visitors are asked to use common sense in choosing and soaking your targets. It is illegal to open car doors or homes to spray inside. By following these guidelines, everyone can have a great time!
It all started approximately 25 years ago, when a softball team called the “Beach Bums” was challenged to a game by “Pier 1,” another Tybee softball team. The Beach Bums won the game and, afterwards, both teams drove up and down Butler Avenue with police escorts as the players bombed each other with water balloons. Before they knew it, there was a water fight in the making. Since then, the event has become the Tybee Island Beach Bum Parade, known far and wide as a favorite annual island tradition.
There are so many great things going on this weekend you should come spend some time in my flip-flops!

Children and parents will be learning about safe bicycling practices at the Tybee Island Bike Rodeo on Saturday, April 28th. Between 10:00 and 1:00 PM, at Tybee’s Old School at 204 Fifth Street, participants will learn the basics of helmet fitting, go through a bicycle safety check, participate in bicycle games and competitions for prizes, and take part in a bicycle parade on the island. The bike checks will be performed with the assistance of volunteers as well as staff from Savannah’s Bicycle Link and Perry Rubber Bike Shop and Tybee Island’s Fat Tire Bikes. At the end of the day, there will be a drawing for a child’s bike provided by the Tybee Island Police Association and Tim’s Beach Gear.
The Bike Rodeo is co-sponsored by the Savannah Bicycle Campaign, Safe Kids, the Tybee Island Police Department, Tim’s Beach Gear, Fat Tire Bikes, the Tybee Island YMCA, and the City of Tybee Island. The City of Tybee Island has been working on national recognition as a Bicycle Friendly City, winning the bronze level in 2011. The Police Department and the Department of Public Works have been cooperating with local cyclists and the American Bicycle League to improve the ridability of bike routes, increase signage to encourage use, improve safety consciousness of riders and drivers, and work with State and County agencies to improve accessibility to the island for cyclists. Safe bicycling guidelines and a map showing bike routes are available in an online brochure atwww.cityoftybee.org under the Bicycling menu, which is also published by businesses on the island.
Children must have a bike and helmet, and bring a parent /guardian to participate in the rodeo or provide a signed waiver by a parent or guardian, although there will be some helmets available for those who do not already have one. Parents who wish to participate in the parade should also bring their bicycles and helmets. The bicycle games are designed for grades one through five, but will be open to all youth.
And, don’t forget our 2012 Tybee Turtle Trot this weekend…no helmets required!
If it’s happening, it’s happening on Tybee! Come join the fun!
When it’s time for a break, I want you to head on down to where life’s a breeze…Tybee Palms Cottage!
Come enjoy a relaxing vacation on Tybee Island under the palms of Tybee Palms Cottage!
This home is located within walking distance of Tybee’s lovely beach, several restaurants and other Tybee attractions. After a day at the beach, you can relax outside under the umbrella on the deck or swing in the glider under the palm trees of this charming two bedroom, two bath ground level cottage.
Our cottage is fully furnished and offers all the comforts of home! You can enjoy a family game night in the sun-room or simply relax with a good book.
Just outdoors in the private, fenced-in yard you can use our gas grill and enjoy Tybee’s wonderful weather while dining on the deck or concrete picnic table. Tybee Palms has two satellite TV’s, a DVD player and a washer and dryer for your convenience. Although there is not a phone or WIFI connection at the cottage, both are available nearby.
Get away from it all at Tybee Palms where you can enjoy the perfect getaway for two couples, a couple with children, or a romantic hideaway for two! Now, how soon can I expect you to get here!
Antony and Cleopatra…Rhett and Scarlett…Lady and The Tramp. It’s the great kisses that we remember. Just like at dusk when the waters start lurring the sun closer and closer…down into the sea…you can hear the sizzle as the fire ball melts into the waters around Tybee Island.
Whether you’re popping the top of a cold one on the south beach or savoring the salt around the rim of a margarita in our famous Tybee plastic cups or clinking together long slender flutes of champagne outside one of our beach cottages …it’s the kiss you’ll remember…forever…
One of my favorite places to enjoy the view, the libations, great friends and a fantastic meal is Coco’s Sunset Grille! Life in Tybee Island is always wonderful at the beach, but some of the most memorable sites to enjoy on the island are along the shores and marshes along Lazaretto Creek. I love to climb to the roof at Coco’s to watch the shrimp boats wander in with the catches of the day, knowing the fresh seafood will soon make its way into Coco’s kitchen.
Their famous Coco-Ritas are what I long for at the end of the day as I munch on their special beer battered calamari and Nacho Coco. When I’ve got a group of friends in tow it’s on to their insanely delicious low country boil and their fresh Tybee salad to complete the feast. Just know when you want to be greedy all to your self or share something special with your someone special, try the Bo Diddley. It’s a roast beef sub piled high on a fresh roll and topped with Monterrey Jack cheese and au jus for dipping! Yes, Coco’s is famous for fresh seafood, but this sandwich is something to savour!
Oh, and what about that kiss? Well, let’s just say it’s a hot, wet one when the sun disappears into the marsh waters as the shellfish beds clap their shells shut in unison as if to give the sunset an ovation. It’s a great way to end a day and start off another great night. Just call me and I’ll show you how!
As we all know, life is full of lessons and if there’s one tip I can share with you it’s to learn to live like a local when you’re away from home. To find the best local foodie treats just stick with me! When cocktails come to mind, you might think about a fresh morning Mimosa or a perky, late afternoon margarita. I’m happy to share with you my favorite Tybee cocktail. It’s the super delicious Shrimp Cocktail at Stingray’s!
Now, I could go on and on about how there’s not a bad choice on their menu. Other highlights for me are the Sting Wings, the Shrimp or Oyster Po-Boys and their heaping sides of sausage and red potatoes, but sometimes I just want something light that showcases the best of the seafood from our Tybee waters…the Shrimp Cocktail. On days like today, I just love sitting outside in the fresh air and savoring the sweetness of the jumbo Shrimp lined around the rim of a cocktail glass. I’m also very particular about how cocktail sauce should compliment the shrimp and Stingray’s cocktail sauce is the best I’ve found. During the middle of the day I don’t need much else to enjoy this special treat, but when cold libations come to mind you can bet their full bar is stocked with every kind of libation you’d like!
Stingray’s is open every day from 11 a.m. until it’s not and there’s both inside and outside seating with lots of live entertainment throughout the week. Whether you’re watching a big game, enjoying one of Tybee’s famous parades or just laughing it up with friends, Stingray’s is a fun place to be. Just like the rest of Tybee, it’s a great place to live like a local and to watch the world pass by.
