Easter Services

  • If attending a church service is an important part of your Easter traditions, feel free to pay a visit to one of our local churches throughout Orange Beach or Gulf Shores.
  • Start your holiday off on the right foot with a sunrise service on the pristine white sandy beach. Each year, The Hangout hosts an Easter Sunday church service and the public is invited.

Try a Fun-Filled Festival

  • Every mid-April, people travel from near and far to attend the Zydeco & Crawfish Festival. The day kicks off with a 5k Run and the crawfish start to boil around 10 a.m. As the day continues, you’ll have a blast checking out the arts and crafts booths, dancing to lively music, and tasting plenty of mouthwatering crawfish! One of the best parts of this festival is that admission is free!
