New Options for New Year's Eve in Gulf Shores
Again I find myself in a position of new entertainment options coming to me rather than me traveling to find them. Now in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida area I have SO many new options for celebrating New Year's Eve.
One of the most intriguing New Year's Eve options is actually an outdoor event on the "streets" of The Wharf. A local band from Mobile, Alabama, the Tip Tops, are the headliner and they are one of my all time favorite bands. In fact during the Shrimp Festival in October in Gulf Shores I made sure not to miss their performance. There will be fun entertainment for kids such as a living statue, unicyclist, juggler, caricaturist, fortune teller, and a magician. In addition to the live entertainment, The Wharf will have projection screens highlighting other New Year’s Eve events around the country. At the stroke of midnight a new coastal tradition will be born when "the anchor drops" to mark the new year.
The events, called “Block Party Blowout” will begin at 8:00 p.m. along the Boardwalk. Retail shops and restaurants (some with special extended holiday hours for the occasion) will join in the celebration as The Wharf blocks off Main Street and Wharf Parkway for the party of the year. I can't wait and if you don't have plans yet come on down (check our website for the perfect condo for the weekend). You'll love the many entertainment options and as always you'll love the Alabama and Florida gulf coast.
