The beautiful thing about living in a beach community is that there’s always something buzzing in the wintertime. In 2017, January, February and March all offer some very exciting events. Here’s a peek at just a few:
Reese’s Senior Bowl
When: January 28
Where: Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Mobile
College Football’s premier postseason showcase event, The Senior Bowl showcases the best graduating college football players in the country, most of who become prominent NFL draft picks. Your last chance to watch football before next fall!
We love our snowbirds down here in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, and Fort Morgan. To prove it Gulf Shores & Fort Morgan Tourism has pieced together a comprehensive calendar of events to keep you busy. With everything under the sun including symphonies, art exhibits, parades, festivals, classes, cook-offs, lectures, home shows, and more, your schedule will be full. (And if all of that sounds like too much, you can always skip it and head to the beach. We won’t be mad!)
When: February 28
Where: Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
While we may not offer the insanity that Bourbon Street provides for Mardi Gras, our community throws a pretty impressive party! Come February; you’ll love how the streets shine for the final day before lent. To start, Gulf Shores throws a lively parade in the morning. Following a break from lunch, head east to check out Orange Beach’s parade in the afternoon. A great time for the whole family.
2017 Wharf Boat & Yacht Show
When: March 23-26
Where: The Wharf Entertainment Complex in Orange Beach
If you’re into boats, this is one of the biggest events in our part of the country. Exhibitors are expected to bring in over $100 million in inventory via over 600 boats from the best brands for guests to check out. If you haven’t been, it’s a must see!
