NAVARRE BEACH — The Navarre Beach Pier will be open to the public for free on Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, according to the Santa Rosa County Commission.
The former pier operator, Coastal Concessions, discontinued management of the pier and its concessions on Wednesday.
“During the transition to the new operator, pier admission fees will be waived for Thursday, Nov. 23,” Assistant County Administrator Dan Schebler said. “The date worked out to be a great way to show our thanks to the citizens of Santa Rosa County.”
Growing Santa Rosa Enterprises LLC will take over pier operations Friday. The County Commission approved an agreement Nov. 9 for Growing Santa Rosa Enterprises to manage of the pier, restaurant and concessions.
