July 04 Gulf Shore

Hello, we (2 adults) will be in the Gulf shores/Little Lagoon area 4th of July week and I was wondering what 4th of July celebrations the area offers? (we want to visit the original oyster house and spend some time in the area) Thanks!

There will be a fireworks show at the state pier which is pretty impressive.

Yea, us locals park about a mile away from the pier and watch the fireworks with Sunny 106 on the radio because it's music synchronized to the fireworks

One option during the day would be:

Fort Morgan's Salute to American Independence Jul 4, 2013 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Independence Day is celebrated by artillery firing, small arms firing, and special tours of the fort.

Admission: Admission charged

Phone: 251-540-5257

Website: http://www.fortmorgan.org/

I haven't been to this event, but we have enjoyed other special events at the fort and found them to be very well done.

The fireworks were 3 minutes long - no exaggeration. Not impressive at all.

The fireworks show was cut short due to high winds pushing the embers back toward the spectators. Just bad luck.
