***CANCELLED***Wild and Wicked Beach Bash- Gulf Place, Gulf Shores
October 18, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
The National Weather Service has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for our area with potentially severe weather approaching as early as mid-day Friday. Due to the likelihood of strong tropical storm force winds and heavy rains, City Officials have decided to cancel all events related to the Wild & Wicked Beach Bash, including the Haunted Hustle 5K, Witches on Wheels Bike Parade and concert by Fly By Radio.
Unfortunately, as was indicated on our pre-registration information, we are unable to issue refunds. Registered participants may still pick up their packets tonight from 4 to 7 p.m. at Big Beach Brewing Company. Remaining packets may be picked at the Bodenhamer Recreation Center beginning tomorrow, October 18.
We apologize for the cancellation, but the safety of our community is top priority, and we do not want to take any chances or put anyone at risk.
The City of Gulf Shores is excited to announce the Wild and Wicked Beach Bash coming to Gulf Place Public Beach October 18th. Locals and visitors are invited to wear their best Halloween costume and participate in this horrifyingly fun event featuring a Haunted Hustle 5K, Witches on Wheels, and live music from Fly By Radio! The Dolphin Athletic Club will be selling beer on site. All proceeds will go directly to Gulf Shores High School Athletics.
The Witches on Wheels bicycle ride begins at 6 p.m. to kick off the evening. Witches and warlocks are invited to jump on their brooms (bicycles will suffice) and parade around the Gulf Place Town Green throwing beads and candy to bystanders. The cost to participate in Witches on Wheels is $20 until Sept. 30. Beginning on Oct. 1, the registration fee will increase to $25. The cost will include the event t-shirt.

The Haunted Hustle 5K will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Ghosts, goblins, and monsters of all sorts are invited to enjoy an evening run on our USATF certified course. The 5K course will start and finish in front of Gulf Place Town Green. The cost to participate in the Haunted Hustle 5K is $30 until Sept. 30. The cost to participate will increase to $35 on Oct. 1.
