Make this Fourth of July unforgettable in South Mobile County! The world is surely getting back to normal and unlike last year, Dauphin Island and the surrounding villages are planning an Independence Day celebration like none other. Stay for the weekend or come for the day, either option will make this beloved holiday special.
Imagine walking under the bright sun and blue sky with fine sand creepin’ in between your toes. Imagine kicking your feet up in a lawn chair on the West End watching Jaws and Jaws 2 with the Sunset Capital of Alabama working her magic. This movie series will get a July 4th rolling early on Thursday, July 1st, and Friday, July 2nd. If Jaws is too much, Saturday, July 3rd, Little Mermaid will premiere on the beach.
Imagine walking on the Friday before the big weekend in Grand Bay, experiencing a crowd of watermelon lovers snacking on the delightful fruit all day, refreshing your tastebuds of what summer tastes like. And it’s much more than a watermelon festival; expect to see the best food, arts, and entertainment like a petting zoo, train rides, bungee bounce, and much more.
Imagine the Gulf of Mexico waters crashing into the barrier island we called “Paradise” and washing away every care in the world. Imagine hundreds of other Americans wearing red, white, and blue and coming together to celebrate America’s Independence for the first time in over a year.
If you come to #visitSoMo this July 4th, be prepared to experience the fireworks near the Dauphin Island Public Beach & Pier and watch the sparks reflect off the glistening Gulf. Be prepared to listen to local rising music stars like Muscadine Bloodline and jam at Pirate’s Bar & Grill, the Nappie Award Winner for “Best Bar in South Mobile”. Don’t worry, Dority’s Bar & Grill does it just as well when that sun goes down.
And if you want to celebrate those who fought for our independence then and now, the Dauphin Island Veterans Association will host a Remembrance Ceremony at 11:00 AM at the Water Tower.
A stars and stripes summer is almost here, so make the drive over to South Mobile County and experience where adventure and celebration happen naturally.
