  • PARADES CANCELED Due to public safety concerns, the City of Orange Beach has canceled its annual Fat Tuesday parade on February 16th, and the Mystics and Marshals’ night parades on Saturday, February 13th. In line with the city, The Wharf has also canceled its annual parade on Monday, February 15th. Mayor Tony Kennon and the City Council had hoped that parades would be able to roll in 2021 but after discussions with police, fire and our local Mardi Gras krewes, it was determined there was no way to safely hold our usual family-friendly parades. The city looks forward to letting the good times roll in 2022.
  • BOOK SALE CANCELED: The Friends of the Orange Beach Public Library have canceled the Annual Book and Bake Sale fundraiser due to COVID-19 safety concerns. In lieu of the book sale, which was scheduled for February 20th, books are being sold at the library - $1 for paperbacks and $2 for hardcovers. The sale is ongoing with books set up in the library's audiovisual room.
