Happy Labor Day!

With a welcome holiday weekend upon us, the City of Orange Beach would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. This is the last big summer weekend so please be careful on the road and waterways. (See map of No Wake/Idle-Speed Only zones in this email.) 

Whether joining us from out of town for a final summer outing or staying home here in paradise, we want you and your family to enjoy a safe finale to the summer season. Remember, if your planning a trip to the beach, be sure to check the Daily Beach Report at 251-981-SURF (7873) or Surf Rescue's Facebook page for weather and rip current conditions. Have fun and be safe!
