Don’t Be a Fool -- Visit Our Beaches This April
The saying goes “April showers bring May flowers,” but along Alabama’s beaches, the month of April brings with it an array of exciting events and other fun things to see and do.
One of the first events in April is the Waterway Village Zydeco & Crawfish Festival (April 4). This extremely popular annual event combines hot, lip-smacking crawfish with some of the South’s best Zydeco bands for an afternoon of fun in the sun. Attendees also have the option to show up early and participate in the 5K or 1-Mile Fun Run to help work up an appetite for a day filled with Cajun delights.
It might come as a surprise, but the legendary Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar is a happening spot during Easter weekend. On the Saturday before Easter (April 11), Flora-Bama hosts its annual Easter Egg Hunt & Kids Fun Day. This egg-normous event includes arts and crafts, games, face painting, snacks and music as well as an Easter egg hunt out on the beach behind the Bama. As the egg hunt comes to a close, the Easter Bunny will arrive in style by skydiving right onto our sugar-white sand. Then, on Easter Sunday (April 12), the Flora-Bama Church invites all locals and visitors to join in their Easter celebration services. Between the three services – sunrise, 9am and 11am – more than 4,000 patrons call Flora-Bama their home on Easter morning.
One of the greatest MGM classics and America’s Fairy Tale, The Wizard of Oz, is making its way to the South Baldwin Community Theatre (April 16-26). Travel down the yellow brick road with Dorothy, Toto and her lively friends she meets on their way to see the Wizard. Showtimes are April 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 at 7:30pm; and April 19 and 26 at 2:30pm.
