It’s time again for the seasonal migration of winter travelers to the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coasts. The Snowbird Company invites the area’s wintertime guests to the 2018 Annual Snowbird Fest slated for Saturday, Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf.

Headlining the festival will be a Johnny Cash tribute artist to entertain the crowd with classic tunes, and a dose of hilarity with a tribute to Lucille Ball to add a touch of comedy to the festival as well! There will be complimentary food samples provided by more than 20 local restaurants, as well as door prizes throughout the day. Also the British Car Club will have a selection of classic cars on display.

Snowbirds attending from the Pensacola, Destin, and Fort Walton Beach areas can register to be provided free transportation compliments of Snowbird Fest, and Good Time Tours.
