The Caribbean Comes to OWA, Aug. 1Celebrate summer, family-fun with OWA’s free Caribbean-themed festivities, entertainment
(Foley, Alabama) – Spend a day celebrating that island feel with a worry-free mentality and the sounds of Caribbean music at OWA. In its inaugural debut, Caribbean Day festivities kickoff at OWA on Saturday, August 1, so plan to bring the family and celebrate good times with a fun-filled day. Begin your day with an 8am Zumba class on OWA’s island, compete against your favorite family member in a game of coconut bowling, or let the kids release some of that energy at the interactive drum class.
Throughout the entire day, enjoy a variety of fun (and free!) events and entertainment with family and friends. Jam to live reggae music, grab a delicious island-themed cocktail at one of OWA’s restaurants, or get a colorful hair wrap as you stroll the streets of Downton OWA. If you’re worried about the heat, OWA has planned a new installation to provide extra shade just for you. Grab your camera and come grab a perfectly “Instagrammable” photos under our umbrella sky art installation!
In addition to interactive family fun, Downtown OWA will also play host to live street-art demonstrations. The finalists for Caribbean Day’s Art Competition have been chosen, so come out to OWA to watch them paint the streets, compete to win, and vote for your favorite in both Youth and Professional categories.
OWA’s entire Caribbean Day celebration is free to attend and open to the public. The family-friendly festivities will last throughout the day and into the evening for some nighttime fun. For more information on times, locations, and performers, please go to www.visitowa.com/caribbean-day/.
