Celebrate Independence Day with Sports and Beach

Sports fanatics will want to make time for two action-packed events that will be the ideal warm-up to holiday fun and fireworks with friends and family.

Will you be celebrating our nation’s birthday on the Alabama Gulf Coast? You’ll find red-hot fun, pristine white sand and brilliant blue water on your getaway to the beach.

Flag on the Beach

Why just watch when you can participate in a sporting event? The Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar will host the 2019 The SHARK Adventure Run, beginning at 7 a.m. on July 4. This isn’t your typical run on the beach. The course will be 2 miles on the road and 2.5 miles on the beach. Each participant will wear a flag football belt throughout the race. Participants must have flags intact when crossing the finish line to order to be eligible for awards.

What better way to ring in Independence Day than with America’s favorite pastime? Catch the opening day of the 2019 USSSA Global Sports Baseball World Series 3 on June 24. This youth baseball tournament will play its last inning at the Gulf Shores Sportsplex on June 29.


The red, white and blue lights will radiate during the Independence Day Street Party and Fireworks on July 3. This family-friendly event will feature kids’ activities from 5 until 9 p.m., followed by fireworks, and ending with Spectra the Sound and Light Spectacular shows directly after the fireworks.

Will you be spending your holiday on Alabama’s beaches?
