LuLu's Noon Years Eve in Gulf Shores AL

Ring in the New Year Gulf Coast-Style!

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Whether you are looking for family-friendly entertainment or classic all-night bash, you can celebrate in style in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. We have events going on during the day, on New Year's eve itself and even on New Year's day so that you

start the new year off properly. Listed below are some of the scheduled events. We would love for you to join us at these events and have a great time. We want you to come back and see us many times, so we ask that you indulge responsibly and take advantage of our area taxis if needed.  

NOTE: For those of you new to the area, it is customary in the South to eat black-eyed peas, greens and cornbread on New Year's day to ensure health, prosperity and good luck in the coming year. So don't be surprised if you are offered these delicacies. It would be considered most ungracious to refuse this hospitality.
