While most of the United States deals with winter weather, shoveling snow, and difficult driving conditions, vacationers traveling to Gulf Shores, AL, during February enjoy temperatures in the low seventies, sunny skies, and fantastic local events such as the Orange Beach Seafood Festival & Car Show. Held Feb. 23, this event is beloved by locals and tourists alike, offering an entire day of great food, live music, and fun activities. Here are a few details about the event so you can make your beach vacation memorable.
Orange Beach Seafood Festival & Car Show
If you care about supporting local causes, the Orange Beach Seafood Festival & Car Show is the perfect destination for your family.

The money raised helps pay for clinics, uniforms, insurance, and new equipment.
