    At the risk of being called the grammar police, I must point out that there is never a “first annual” anything.

    Whoever wrote this press release really needs to invest in an AP style guide.

    It should be “The inaugural Pensacola Blues Festival is set for February 2012.” Next year the title can be “The 2nd Annual Pensacola Blues Festival is set for February 2013

    Here’s the cite from the Associated Press Stylebook, which explains why — whatever your personal opinion on this — you should refrain from using “first annual” in any submission to a news organization:

    “An event cannot be described as annual until it has been held in at least two successive years. Do not use the term first annual. Instead, note that sponsors plan to hold an event annually.”

    If you are having a private event, call it anything you wish. If you want publicity through media, call it “inaugural” in order to be taken seriously.
