Cornhole Classic Coming to OWA

22 May, 2019


Full Set of Memorial Day Weekend Activities are Also Planned

Summer has officially arrived at OWA. This Memorial Day Weekend marks the start of summer at the Gulf Coast’s largest entertainment destination. From fireworks to DJ parties, May 24-27 will be jam packed with fun things for the entire family.

In terms of sports, the big news is the Sunday, May 26 presentation of the inaugural Cornhole Classic. Sixteen teams of two will compete for cash prizes in OWA’s first cornhole tournament starting at 1pm on OWA’s Island. Preregistration is required for any team to participate. Payment and registration can be found at VisitOWA.com/Cornhole. Only 16 teams can participate. Throughout the event, there will also be a live DJ on the Island’s stage, options to purchase delicious food and drinks, and fun all around.

The weekend kicks off on Friday, May 24 with the premiere of GLOWA. Back by popular demand, GLOWAreturns to light up the night at OWA throughout the summer season. The free, family-friendly DJ party will be bigger than ever this year, lasting nearly an hour with two different performances nightly. GLOWA starts at 8pm with its signature glow lights and live DJ performances. Families will have the chance to sing and dance with GLOWA’s performers, as well as practice a few of their own moves!

Saturday, May 25 starts and ends with quite a bang! In addition to fun kids activities inside The Park at OWA all weekend long, Saturday welcomes the Tommy Morse Band on OWA’s Island from 4-7pm for a free concert. After jamming with a local favorite, catch the 8pm GLOWA performance, followed by Foley’s largest, free firework show at 8:45pm! The fireworks can be seen throughout the property, but the best viewing areas are at OWA’s main entrance, OWA’s Island, or inside The Park at OWA.

This Memorial Day weekend also plays host to the premiere of the Brandon Styles Magic Show. You know his variety act, but now it’s time to see the pure magic of it all—alongside his lovely assistant and wife, Diamond. The weekend’s shows will be Friday, May 24 at 8pm and Monday, May 27 at 7pm. This one-of-a-kind show can’t be missed, so grab your tickets for his new summer show today at BrandonStyles.com.

“Everyone here at OWA is extremely excited to get the summer season started,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s Director of Marketing/PR. “It’s our goal to make OWA your summer hot spot! We have so many new events and activities for everyone in the family to enjoy.”

Starting May 24, The Park at OWA will be open every day in the summer. Downtown OWA is open 7 days a week beginning at 11am.
