GulfQuest's annual 4th of July Celebration is coming up fast!
The museum will be open from 2pm-7pm, with facepainting and patriotic activities in the lobby. Admission is only $5, and tickets can be pre-ordered here.
Come hungry! The Galley will be serving hamburgers, hot dogs, and BBQ sandwiches from 2pm-9pm on the Promenade outside GulfQuest.
Did we mention there's also going to be a waterslide and live music in Cooper Riverside Park? Prepurchase your tickets for the waterslide here and don't forget your swimsuits, towels, and sunscreen!
Fireworks are starting at 9pm, bring a lawn chair and blankets to enjoy the spectacle over the waterfront. Local bands Mobile Pops and the Emerge Show & Band will be playing until 11pm, so the party isn't over when the fireworks are!
We can't wait to see everyone!
CUT OF HIS JIB
Mariners took pride in their sails, including the jib (a type of triangular sail). A flapping jib, or a badly made one, was ridiculed. Today, we still gauge people by the "cut of their jib."
