We’ve been waiting patiently through the fall, winter and spring. It’s time to kick off the summer season with a memorable Memorial Day weekend on the coast! It may take the calendar a few weeks to declare summer official, but we don’t mind being ahead of the game!

The party gets started with the 100 Days of Summer Kick Off with Pepsi Beach Ball Drop at the Wharf on May 27.  And the Wharf Amphitheater will be rocking the C Spire Concert Series on May 28 with Lee Brice and May 31 with Jimmy Buffett.

Athletes will be running and jumping at the 2016 NAIA Outdoor Track & Field National Championship May 26 – 28. Fort Morgan hosts a Memorial Day Tribute on May 28. Historical interpreters dressed in U.S. Army uniforms from different eras of the forts occupation will conduct special guided tours throughout the day.

Over at LuLu’s the weekend rocks with LuLuPalooza on May 28. The music starts at 2:30 pm and continues into the night on the outdoor boat stage.  Lucy Buffett will also be on hand to sign her re-release of LuLu’s Kitchen, A Taste of the Gulf Coast Good Life.

At the Flora-Bama you can cheer beautiful ladies in the Miss Memorial Day Bikini Contest on May 30. And for fishing action check out the MBGFC Memorial Day Tournament May 27 – 30.

Still need more? We’ve got it! You can celebrate at your favorite restaurant or enjoy an adventure with a dolphin cruise, a visit to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo or a patriotic tour of the USS Alabama in Mobile. And what about all the great live music at area hot spots?

Of course, if your Memorial Day weekend is spent laid back at the beach or on the balcony of your condo, hotel or beach home, that sounds pretty amazing too!
