Located on the westernmost point of Florida's coastline, Perdido Key is an ideal getaway any time of the year, but the Fourth of July is one of the best times to visit this vacation destination. When you rent Perdido Key condos or beach houses this summer, you'll be within close proximity to a number of the area's best patriotic displays in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. However, Perdido Key rentals are particularly close to Flora-Bama, one of the region's most beloved establishments that hosts a range of events, from live music to parties on the beach.
Head to Flora-Bama and enjoy the most traditional American cuisine in honor of Independence Day - barbecue - and watch some stunning ladies compete for the grand prize. This Fourth of July, the restaurant, bar and lounge is hosting its annual Independence Day BBQ Festival on the beach and Ms. Firecracker Bikini Contest. Locals and visitors alike are invited to enjoy the food, drink and entertainment on the beach and throughout the lounge, whether upstairs playing pool or downstairs in the open-air bar.
The Ms. Firecracker Bikini Contest offers contestants the opportunity to win as much as $5,000 for the grand prize, although those who win second and third place can't complain too much either - they'll bring home $1,000 and $500 respectively in cash and prizes.
As with most Flora-Bama events, the Fourth of July festivities are accompanied by some of the best live music around - in the past, acts such as the Adam Holt Band, The Troy Brannon Band, Big Muddy and Elaine Petty have performed.
Although the events taking place at Flora-Bama will provide plenty of excitement for the day, white sandy beach stretches out in front of the restaurant as well. Patrons are invited to enjoy what will surely be a gorgeous sunny day in this Gulf Coast location, whether they choose to party at Flora-Bama, stay on the beach or head out on the water.
