Thunder on the Gulf, Orange Beach, Alabama
October 13-17, 2010

By Kristin Destin, ResortQuest Northwest Florida

Orange Beach is getting ready for the races!  Thunder on the Gulf will take place this year October 13-17 at the Gulf State Park Pavilion on the beach.  Spectators can check out the massive race boats, racers, festivities and official race merchandise, while enjoying spectacular views of our beautiful coast. 

The Dry Pits will be open to the public from Wednesday through Sunday, 8am to 10pm.  They will also be splashing race boats at the Wet Pits at the Caribe Resort, which you can view from Cobalt Restaurant.  There will be racing in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday and Sunday so come and see these powerboats in motion!

The kick-off party at Florabama starts the fun the night of October 13th.  On the 14th, Happy Harbor will feature a race party.  And if you still haven’t gotten your fill of partying, come on down to Live Bait II on the 16th for another race party, following the Pleasure Island Poker Run which will be open to the public. 

Also in town during the event will be Bon Jovi on Friday night and Brad Paisley on Sunday evening!  These concerts are free but are ticketed events and ResortQuest has just a few tickets left.  Please visit our website for information on how you can get these tickets when you book one of our gorgeous condominiums!
