Voted one of America's best vacation destinations, Gulf Shores has been a family friendly oasis for decades. This weekend, keep the kiddies home. Gulf Shores will be rockin' for the big people.
With a lineup of over 80 bands, including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the one and only Stevie Wonder, it's going to be a party. BIG PARTY. Tickets have sold out and good luck finding a parking spot or even finding the beach.
The owners of the Hangout not only set up several stages right on the Gulf of Mexico, but also bring in Palm Trees (which everyone should know, these types of palms are NOT natural to our Gulf beaches - just a pet peeve of mine.)
VIP ticket holders can also take a dip in a temporary giant swimming pool if the Gulf of Mexico is too hard to find.
This festival has grown to become one of the major tourist weekends of the year. Businesses love it, and locals have the same choice residents of New Orleans have during Mardi Gras.
Join the fun, or hit the road.
