Bell Silhouette in Sunset

Featured Attraction

Nightly Sunset Bell Ringing at Paradise Grille

Join Head Ding Dong Jim LeBlanc in ringing the sunset bell to celebrate family, friends or vacation memories.  Before Christianity, bells were popular in India and across to Japan as a method to carry the will of the Gods, provide peace, clear minds and help chase away evil spirits. Moses, who studied in Egypt, brought the bell tradition to his people. 

Over the past decades, thousands of people have joined the Pass-a-Grille tradition to ring the bell and sign the bell’s guest books which are kept at the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum on 10th Avenue.  In the guest book you will find heartfelt messages honoring life's special moments - engagements, weddings, birthdays, memorials to loved ones, graduations and other family celebrations by the hundreds.  

These guest books include photos taped on pages, and obituaries pasted in surrounded by family messages. There are people from all over the country and international visitors with a common thread throughout expressing heartfelt appreciation of the peacefulness of the area, the beautiful Gulf waters, the friendly locals and what the tradition of ringing the bell means to them. Some ring it every yearly visit. 

Our extraordinary sunsets are made even more special by the nightly ringing of the bell. Thanks to Jim and his volunteers for keeping the tradition alive - rain or shine!  You can contact Jim at 571-722-9323 if you would like to arrange ringing the bell in advance of your visit or just arrive 15-30 minutes before sunset and Jim is not hard to find.
