October is officially here and with that comes the famous, Destin Fishing Rodeo! The Destin Fishing Rodeo is Destin's longest-running tradition. The event is a month-long fishing tournament that draws anglers from all over the United States to Destin in October to compete for prizes and bragging rights for landing the biggest fish. A special tradition during the Fishing Rodeo includes Miss Destin. The beautiful and amazing 2022 Miss Destin will reign over the 74th annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. This includes representing during the weigh-ins every day during the month-long event. We are thrilled to feature this year's Miss Destin, Ella Kathryn Campbell.
On September 22nd the community came together to attend the annual Meet Miss Destin event at the Harbor Docks Restaurant on the Destin harbor.
