2nd Annual Spring Fling Event Returns to OWA, April 20
Event features egg hunts, live music, family-friendly events, petting zoo
(Foley, Alabama) — It’s time to celebrate the Spring season in style with OWA. This Saturday, April 20th marks the 2nd annual Spring Fling celebration at the resort destination in Foley, Alabama. Spring Fling is a completely free event that will incorporate family-friendly fun throughout the entire property. From live music on the Island’s amphitheater to egg hunts inside The Park at OWA, there will be endless activities for families to enjoy.
Spring Fling kicks off at 11am on OWA’s Island with an adorable petting zoo, partnered with local Emerson Farms in Summerdale, Alabama. Kiddos can pet alpacas and baby goats, as well as feed them carrots that will be for sale. It wouldn’t be a Spring Fling celebration without Mr. and Mrs. Bunny making an appearance for pictures with the kids! They will be on OWA’s Island from 11am-3pm, intermittently. Commemorative photos will also be available for an additional price.
“We have really kicked this year’s event into high gear with the incorporation of the amusement park,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA Director of Marketing/PR. “It’s our goal to grow existing events year over year, as well as add new happenings for guests to enjoy.”
With the launch of The Park’s free Non-Rider Ticket, all guests can enjoy the fun of the egg hunts inside The Park—if they do not wish to ride any attractions. The Park is boasting a whopping 8,000 eggs up for grabs throughout the day. The egg hunts will be divided into age groups: 0-3 years at 11:45am, 4-6 years at noon, and 7+ at 12:15pm.
In honor of upcoming Earth Day, guests are encouraged to recycle at least a dozen eggs found during the event at the “Egg Redemption Center” inside The Park for a free snow cone! All locations for the egg hunt starting areas, specific times, and more information on this free event can be found at VisitOWA.com/SpringFling.
