Perdido Beach Resort will shoot fireworks over Perdido Pass on July 2
Hotel festivities include All-American beachside BBQ with The Tip Tops
Perdido Beach Resort, the Alabama Gulf Coast’s premier luxury beach front hotel, will once again celebrate our nation’s independence by hosting our annual Fireworks Gala and Barbeque on Saturday, July 2, on the hotel beach decks in Orange Beach. This annual event includes an all-American beachside barbeque, live music featuring The Tip Tops, cash bars, and its largest ever star-spangled fireworks show from the beach. The event is open to the general public.
In addition to the evening barbeque and concert, the hotel will be hosting a number of events throughout the Independence weekend to keep guests and their families entertained. Beginning on Friday, July 1, a number of family-friendly activities are planned throughout the day for both the beach and the beach deck that will culminate with a “Dive in Movie” by the pool followed by a bonfire on the beach and S’mores to end the evening. More family-friendly events will take place all day on Saturday, July 2nd, to include face painting, tye-dying t-shirts, carnival games, a watermelon eating contest, a mullet toss and beach volleyball.
Live music, cash bars, and general seating for the main event start at 6 p.m. Saturday on the resort’s beach decks. The barbeque will feature Independence Day specials including multiple salad offerings, barbeque spareribs, barbeque beef, slow roasted barbeque pulled pork, chicken, Conecuh sausage and a variety of side dishes and desserts. The largest fireworks show in the history of the resort will light up the sky over the Gulf of Mexico at dusk (approximately 9:00 p.m.) from the resort’s beach. Following the fireworks extravaganza, the Tip Tops will be moving to the Perdido Beach Resort’s Ballroom to entertain guests until 2:00 a.m.
