    (Foley, Alabama) —  This Labor Day weekend celebrate at a free, socially distanced event as OWA hosts its third annual Labor Day Car Show, as well as free Labor Day Celebration Fireworks, and fun festivities starting Saturday, September 5, 2020. 
    “This is the third year we are partnering with Foley First Baptist Church Missions Program to produce the ever-expanding OWA Labor Day Car Show,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s Director of Marketing/PR. “With a variety of showroom quality vehicles lining the beautiful streets of Downtown OWA, this event is sure to bring excitement and surprises.”
    More than 100 vehicles and their owners will line the streets of admission-free Downtown OWA from 8am-4pm on Saturday, September 5th to show off the works of art. From antiques to hot rods, all cars are welcome. Judging is from 9am to noon, and the award ceremony will begin on the OWA Island at 2pm! The event is free and open to the public!
    Want to submit your car for a chance to win? All registration proceeds benefit the First Baptist Church of Foley. Registration begins at 6:30am, so for cars looking to park together, be sure to check-in at the same time!
    Don’t think the fun stops when the car show ends! For an extra fun twist, we’ll have a transforming robot roaming, so catch that fun photo opportunity with the kids!  Be on the lookout for patriotic kids crafts in The Park from 2-4pm.  Stick around for a free fireworks celebration at 8:45pm. We’ll be passing out 3D glasses to enhance your viewing experience while supplies last, so come early and save your seat! Some of our favorite viewing spots in Downtown include the many bridges over Lake OWA, the green space on either side of Cinnabon, over by Clash eSports Center, OWA Theater, and at the OWA Island Amphitheater of course!
    Labor Day Car Show, Labor Day Celebration Fireworks, and Downtown OWA activities are all free for the public to enjoy. More information plus a schedule of events can be found at VisitOWA.com.
