This summer, fun at The Wharf in Orange Beach is in full swing! Every night of the week, the Wharf is offering a new family-friendly activity that you won’t want to miss. Check out the full list of daily happenings below.
Fridays and Saturdays
Dancin’ in the Street
Through August 10
Are you ready to dance the night away every Friday and Saturday night this summer? There’s no better place to safely dance in the streets than at The Wharf! We’ll kick off the weekend right with a boogie-worthy block party all along Main Street. DJ Josh will be in full effect, spinning those tail-feather shaking tunes while Starla the Starfish mascot salsas her way down Main. Stay a little later for our Spectra Sound and Light Spectacular nightly shows at 8:30, 9 and 9:30 PM! Swing into summer at The Wharf, partake in games, win prizes, what else would be better on your summer Friday night?
Painting Under the Pams
Have you always enjoyed art or do you consider yourself someone who likes to color outside the lines? Either way, here is your chance to really give it ago under the beautiful twinkling summer sky and palm trees! Join us every Sunday at Palm Plaza next to the Ferris Wheel for painting classes starting at 5:30 PM and 6:45 PM. Let the artist inside you come out this summer and see what amazing works of art you can create! This fun is for all ages so bring your kids or your girlfriends, maybe even grab a cocktail or two, after all we are the entertainment district!
Sparks After Dark
The Sparks After Dark fireworks show will flash to life again this summer! You’ll have a weekly chance to catch the high-flying flickers in action thanks to our gracious sponsors. Bring the gang along and set up on Main Street for the best vantage point of the vibrant skies. Keep your eyes peeled for Starla the Starfish and Baby Shark as they strut along the street during the display. Experience the snap, crackle and pop of color all summer long! Begins at 8:45 p.m.
Free to Attend, Face Painting $5-$10
Summer is the perfect season to have a little (or a lot) of FUN! We are bringing back Kids Night weekly at The Wharf, focusing solely on the little ones. Family-friendly and safe, this exciting night will take place each Tuesday in Palm Plaza right next to the Ferris Wheel. DJ Josh will provide the jams while you get into the groove with face painting, games, a bouncy house, water slide and much more! Every Tuesday will be a little different with varying themes to keep the excitement fresh….including a Toxic Battle Zone and live animals. Don’t miss out on all the fun; come spend your Tuesday summer night under the stars with us during Kids Night!
Ahoy Maties!! Join us every Wednesday night from 5-8 PM for the Pepsi Treasure Hunt! Stop by Marlin Circle first to get your treasure map and the quest is on! Find the items on the map then return back to where “X” marks the spot to collect your treasure! Stay for our nightly SPECTRA Sound and Light Show and see Pirate Philippe “Stinky” Lafitte, brother of the infamous pirate Jean Lafitte. Sail along with the fumbling, bumbling Stinky and gang of scallywags as they head towards New Orleans to pillage, plunder and hide their haul of gold on the Gulf Coast. The night will be filled with family fun and great memories to remember throughout the summertime!
Circus on Main
Join us weekly at our Circus on Main for loads of “Big-Top” excitement. Every Thursday evening will hold a clown car full of activities that’ll have you believing you’ve stepped into a real red-and-white striped tent! Each week, there will be various sideshow entertainers, such as a fire act, aerial performer and stilt walker. Prepare to be mesmerized by a magician or have a balloon animal crafted by the balloon artist. Stop by the face painter and then hop on board The Wharf Express for a train ride through the streets of The Wharf to cap off a night of smile-inducing wonder. Consider us your ringleader!
