Perdido Beach Resort will shoot fireworks over Perdido Pass on July 4
Hotel festivities include All-American beachside BBQ, music from Mixed Nuts
Perdido Beach Resort, located in Orange Beach at Perdido Pass, will once again celebrate our nation’s independence by hosting its annual Fireworks Gala and Barbeque on Tuesday, July 4 on the hotel beach decks. This annual event includes an all-American beachside barbeque, live music featuring The Mixed Nuts, cash bars, and its largest ever star-spangled fireworks show from the beach. The Mixed Nuts are a New Orleans based band that has played for numerous Mardi Gras events and opened for Journey, Kid Rock, The Temptations and The Doobie Brothers.
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 Sunday, July 2, 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. More family-friendly events will take place all day on Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4, including musical chairs, a piñata smash, a scavenger hunt, a mullet toss, and a watermelon eating contest.
Live music, cash bars, and general seating for the main event start at 6 p.m. Tuesday 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 p.m.) from the resort’s beach. Following the fireworks extravaganza, the Mixed Nuts will be moving to the Perdido Beach Resort’s Ballroom to entertain guests until 2 a.m.
Pool and beachside activities during the day are complementary for hotel guests.
