Why the World Can't End on Saturday
It's a great week to spend in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach! If you are lucky enough to be here before Memorial Day, you can count on being thoroughly entertained no matter what you enjoy.
NAIA Softball National Championship
If Spring means the
solid crack of a bat meeting a ball, then you are in the right place. NAIA college teams compete from May 19-21 in tournament competition qualifiers at the Gulf Shores Sportsplex. Of the 32 teams competing, 8 teams will advance to double-elimination competition on May 23-24.
For the first time, some games in the double-elimination bracket will be video-streamed live via NeuLion. Game 9 on May 23 will be the first of as many as seven games that will be available. Games 9 – 15, which may include the “if necessary” game, will be streamed for a subscription price of either $5.95 per day, or an event fee of $19.95.
Kenny Chesney will perform at the Wharf Amphitheatre, Saturday, May 21st, 7:00 pm. If you would like to see his brand of country, tickets are still available here.
Hangout Music Festival
It's finally here! Featuring Paul Simon, Foo Fighters, Widespread Panic, Cee Lo Green, and over 50 other musical acts, the Hangout Music Fest delivers one of the best outdoor music festivals in America. Wristbands for this huge event are sold out, but you may be still be able to get wristbands by booking an accommodation package with one of the official lodging partners.
For those already in town for the event, we urge you to get a Hangout shuttle pass rather than try to negotiate the traffic. For only $20, you can get an unlimited shuttle and come and go as you please. Individual rides are $5 each. Routes are shown on the shuttle map.
One last thing about Hangout…
We want your experience here in paradise to be a pleasant one, so please remember to wear plenty of sunscreen and drink plenty of water.
Now go have fun!
