We are planning to vacation at Navarre Beach Memorial Day weekend 2011. Traveling with me will be my wife and young child, my sister and her husband and their young child, and my 60-year-old parents. We had previously planned on going to Pensacola, but learned that on Memorial Day weekend tens of thousands of homosexuals converge for a Gay Pride weekend and basically take over the beaches and restaurants.
Now, I have no desire to engage in a political or moral discussion regarding homosexuality. I'm simply looking for information regarding whether the gay pride festivities/crowds extend to Navarre (we're staying at the Pearl), and if so, what we can expect. If most of the crowds will be closer to Pensacola, we'll probably still go to Navarre.
Thanks for any information.
