The Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival, May 14–16, 2010, has just announced its plan to make it easier to get to and from the 3-day weekend’s events.
For those who wish to drive back and forth from their local accommodations, parking will be available along neighborhood roads and other designated parking areas. But the number of spaces is limited, so be prepared to walk a few blocks to the festival entrance.
A better choice might be to catch one of the three shuttles that will be running from 10:00 a.m. to midnight each of the three festival days. Shuttles will accept $3 cash for each ride, or patrons may purchase a wristband for $10 for unlimited rides. Wristbands may be purchased in advance through The Hangout Music Festival site, at the festival headquarters, or as you board the shuttle.
Or do your part for Mother Earth and help cut back on air and noise pollution by renting a bicycle. The official bike rental company for the festival is Orange Beach Bicycles. When not attending concerts, ride the bike paths and explore some of the area’s beautiful surroundings.
If you’re still not sure how you will get into Gulf Shores from your hometown, and would like to share the experience—as well as money and gasoline—check out Zimride to locate people who are looking for a rider.
And now you can extend the fun! For just $20 more ($25 at the door) you can attend the indoor late-night concert Friday night at The Hangout, featuring Alex B, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) and Big Gigantic.
Make your condo or house reservations through Meyer Real Estate, an official sponsor of the festival, and you can receive a FREE night!
