  1. so there’s a character present? what time?

  2. Brandy-Sunsets at the Plaza begin at 5:30pm and end when the sun sets. The character listed for that date wanders around and meets and greets the kids while the band listed for that date plays through the evening. They are a lot of fun and it is one of our favorite Pensacola activities!

  3. Do you have the “assigned” schedule for dates past June 30?

  4. Last I checked, they weren’t posted but I will update when they do!

  5. Is this still open? We are visiting 9/12-16.

  6. Hi Shannon! According to the schedule, Sunsets at Plaza de Luna Park will continue through September: According to Play Pensacola, Fountain Hours are (April – October) Monday – Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday – Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (For public health and safety, an automated system monitors water quality and may shut down the fountain for short periods of time until treatment can return the water quality to safe levels). You can find this information here: I hope this helps!
