July 4, 2018 festivities will take place over the Gulf in Gulf Shores and The Wharf in Orange Beach. Celebrate our nation's independence at the beach as you take in all the wonder of the Gulf of Mexico and enjoy fireworks under the stars!

Celebrate July Fourth On The Beaches Of Gulf Shores

Get ready for the coast to light up in July 2018 with fireworks celebrations scheduled for July 3 and 4.



If you’re staying in an Orange Beach vacation rental, head on over to The Wharf on July 3, where fireworks will happen over Main Street at 8:45 p.m., with the SPECTRA Sound & Light Spectacular to follow.

Don’t wait until fireworks are set to go off to get to The Wharf. The celebration at The Wharf actually begins at 5 p.m., with a ton of kids’ activities to enjoy, including bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, face painting, a monkey and llamas to feed and pet, the surfboard simulator, games, prizes and more.

In Gulf Shores, festivities will be held on July 4, with fireworks being shot from the Gulf State Park Fishing and Education Pier.

If you're staying anywhere in the Fort Morgan area, or specifically at Beach Club Resort & Spa, there will be a fireworks display on the beach at 9 p.m. Bring your own lawnchair or rent one for $10 on site.

If you're staying at or nearby Turquoise Place in Orange Beach over the Independence Day holiday, you might want to consider watching the fireworks celebration that will be held there on July 4. Live music will be provided by the fun Tip Tops group.

July 4th festivities will be in full swing at OWA with exciting shows, live performances and memorable entertainment capped with a patriotic fireworks show at 8:45 p.m., July 4.

Throughout the day, guests can enjoy entertainment along the admission-free streets of Downtown OWA, like a brass band popping up or high-flying “skippers” performing acrobatic stunts to lively music. Enjoy delicious new restaurants and fun activities during the day, then dance to the rhythm of the Tommy Morse Band from 5-8 p.m. on OWA’s island, complete with outdoor amphitheater. Cap off the holiday festivities with GLOWA, OWA’s live nighttime show at 8:30 p.m., featuring dueling DJs, colorful lights and synchronized fountains.
 
As the night winds down, the fireworks lift off. Kick back on the 1.5-acre island, find a cozy bench downtown, or watch from the top of Freedom Flyer as a spectacular fireworks light up the night sky at 8:45 p.m. over picturesque Lake OWA.

Bring the entire family and enjoy staying in a beautiful Gulf Shores beach house for the July 4 festivities!
