As part of its Independence Day celebration, The Park at OWA will shoot fireworks off at 8:45 p.m., Saturday July 4.

The show will be timed with music and will be visible throughout the entire property.

The fireworks show is just one of several activities taking place at the park that day. There will be patriotic kids’ activities, such as hand painting T-shirts, temporary tattoos, an inflatable obstacle course, and pictures with Rosie the Riveter and Uncle Sam.

Live entertainment will occur throughout the property, including performances at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. by the Ladies Trio.

OWA is located just a few miles north of Gulf Shores beaches at the intersection of the Foley Beach Express and Baldwin County Road 20.

While the typical fireworks show shot from the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores has been canceled, the city still plans to celebrate the day by flying American flags and lighting up the city in red, white and blue.

The Wharf in Orange Beach will shoot off its Independence Day fireworks display at 8:45 p.m., July 3.

Stunning fireworks displays are actually part of the weekly lineup of activities at The Wharf this summer. The Sparks After Dark fireworks show will be held at 8:45 p.m., each Monday from May 28-Aug. 6, with the exception of July 2.

During the fireworks shows, Starla the Starfish will be present and engaging with guests along Main Street at the shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

The Sparks After Dark events are part of a lineup of weekly family-friendly events, including the newly enhanced SPECTRA Sound and Light Spectacular show.

“The enhancements not only include the ultramodern lasers but brand new, upgraded lights made to be weather-resistant and specifically designed for outdoor shows,” said Sheena Mizell, director of marketing and public relations for The Wharf. “This means every light in the show will have more modernized technology working behind it. The additions will allow creators to add in advanced digital graphics and remarkable effects, including new thirty- and sixty-second themed showings. We can’t wait to showcase the new additions with visitors from across the country at the Sparks After Dark premiere.”

Visitors are encouraged to bring the whole family for a night full of fun. Spectators are welcome to come out early to enjoy the DJ playing at 7 p.m., grab a drink in the Entertainment District and then select a socially distant viewing location for their family.

The Flora-Bama will celebrate July 4 with a free four-mile run and one-mile fun run. The races are held at 8 a.m., and everyone is welcomed to participate.

Bring the whole family and all the kids’ friends for a weeklong vacation and book a 5+ bedroom house on the beach. With plenty of room to spread out, everyone will still be able to enjoy their own private space at the end of an exciting day celebrating the birth of our nation.
