Panama City Beach Tweetup

Not applicable

Southwest Airlines held a Tweetup on May 22 to celebrate our new service to Panama City Beach.

The Panama City Beach opening weekend is just about enough to make me want to set up residence here! I have been in heaven with my flip flops in hand and toes in the sand. Saturday night, we upped the ante when we threw a laid back, beach bar-honky-tonk into the mix.

Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge hosted the @SouthwestAir tweetup to introduce Southwest Airlines to Panama City. Followers were invited out via Twitter and the first 100 folks to whisper “Seaturtle” raised a glass to celebrate Southwest Airlines and the new Panama City Beach International Airport.

Folks were tweeting, toes were a-tapping and several walked away with Southwest tickets! The Steve Collier Band kept the crowd lively and shared some Southwest LUV, even bringing our very own Steve Heaser on stage for a duet.

Panama City Beach could not be treating us any better and I look forward to hitching a Southwest ride back here soon!

The photo above is Scott Collier and he invited country artist Randy Houser on stage to sing. Little Jimmy Dickens was also there. If you're going to blog about events, you might want to get your facts straight.
