Gulf Shores Alive With Events

Love wine and great food? How about art? Hot air balloons too? These themes and more provide the backdrop for several unique events in the Gulf Shores area in the next few months.

8/16/2007 - 8/19/2007 - Power Boat Races

10/11/2007 - 10/14/2007 - 36th Annual National Shrimp Festival (click HERE for more details)

    11/8/2007 - 11/18/2007 - 23rd Annual Frank Brown Songwriters Festival

    My personal favorites are the Shrimp Festival because of the unique setting at the beach. In fact I've actually attended most of the 36 annual events. The food is delicious, the music so much fun and the art is fabulous. The Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival is my second favorite because it is so unique not only to our area but any area. With the addition of more attractions during the day and 45 balloons this year the fest should be awesome. I guess my third choice is the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival because there are so many talented artists who usually don't have the opportunity to sing their own creations. With dozens of locations throughout the Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Perdido Key area it is a true delight.
