Water Balloon Battle of Mobile Bay
August is full of more events than you might expect, what with the heat and back-to-school activities, but there is one event in particular that's tailor made for the dog days of summer. We'll celebrate the 152nd anniversary of the epic Civil War naval engagement on land instead of the Bay and with water balloons instead of cannons...we might even change the outcome!
The Water Balloon Battle of Mobile Bay will kick off the August ArtWalk on the 12th in Cathedral Square at 5:30 PM. Bring your own fully loaded super-soaker, if you like, and a towel definitely, since you'll want to dry off before heading to the shops, galleries and restaurants open for ArtWalk. We'll provide the water balloons (3000 of them)!
