FIREWORKS AND FAMILY FUN
No Fourth of July is complete until you’ve watched a fireworks show, especially one held over the water of the Gulf of Mexico. The City of Gulf Shores will celebrate the Fourth of July with a stunning fireworks display, beginning at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 4. Fireworks will be shot from the Gulf State Park Fishing and Education Pier.
At The Lodge at Gulf State Park, located in Gulf Shores, spend the holiday listening to live music, enjoying a traditional Southern cookout, participating in a pie-eating contest, and watching their fireworks show right on the beach. The July 4th Celebration and Cookout at The Lodge takes place from 5:30-9pm. Tickets are $65 for adults and $30 for children.
Another Independence Day extravaganza happening along our shoreline is the Flora-Bama 4th of July All-American BBQ Party. The day’s events kick off with the Freedom Run at 8am, a 4-mile run and 1-mile fun run. Then, starting at 11am, guests can enjoy BBQ, live music and more during the day with a fireworks display later in the evening.
Kick-off Independence Day weekend early with the annual Pepsi Beach Ball Drop on Thursday, July 1 at The Wharf! You’ll want to make sure you are at the center of the action when over 4,000 beach balls fall from the sky! There will be dozens of family friendly activities onsite including a surf simulator, bouncy house, bubble zone, face painting, camel rides and more!
The Wharf in Orange Beach is well-known for bringing nationally- and world-renowned musicians to the Alabama Gulf Coast, and Independence Day weekend is no different. On July 3-4, the CSpire Concert Series presents Luke Combs with special guests Flatland Cavalry and Channing Wilson. Luke Combs is a multi-platinum, award-winning country music artist from Asheville, NC. Tickets for this show are available on Ticketmaster.
