OWA Parks & Resort Announces New Year’s Eve Celebrations

December 19, 2022

(Foley, Alabama) – OWA Parks & Resort is thrilled to announce an exciting night of celebrations to ring in the new year.

On December 31, beginning at 2 pm guests can enjoy a family-friendly day in Downtown OWA at the Bubbles & Beats Street Party. Kids can dance in the new year with an epic bubble party and music by DJ Patrick. Free kids’ crafts, inflatables, and more will also be available. This event is perfect for little ones (and adults, too!) who can’t quite make it to midnight.

Live on the OWA Island stage beginning at 5pm is a free concert by the Jesse Duncan Duo, with their mix of pop, country, and rock. Following the Jesse Duncan Duo is the evening’s headliner, Ryan Dyer, whose country music charm makes him a crowd favorite at OWA.  Guests are encouraged to bring a chair, blanket, or towel to OWA’s Island Amphitheater and enjoy the music.  Stick around for the epic fireworks show starting at 8:50pm. Looking for the perfect viewing area? We recommend the OWA Island Amphitheater, the bridge by Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen or on the Sky Balloons inside Tropic Falls Theme Park. But really, there’s no bad view!

About OWA Parks & Resort: Award-winning OWA Parks & Resort in Coastal Alabama is owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians.  OWA’s name is derived from a Creek word for “big water,” and the tropical theme of the 520-acre property was inspired by the Gulf of Mexico, minutes away via the Foley Beach Express.

 At the heart of OWA is Tropic Falls, which includes a 23-ride theme park, outdoor wave pool and the region’s largest indoor water park—bigger than a football field and covered by a convertible roof. Just outside the ticketed areas is Downtown OWA. This pedestrian-only streetscape was inspired by Southern small towns and features numerous options for dining, shopping, and entertainment.

The destination resort offers a full calendar of events, from Downtown OWA’s own Mardi Gras Parade to the annual Christmas tree lighting with fireworks and snowfall. With its own award-winning TownePlace Suites by Marriott, OWA is the place in Coastal Alabama to thrill, then chill.
