While we’re all prepping for one of the biggest and best weekends at the beach, Gulf Shores City Council will be deciding the fate of Hangout Festival 2016 and beyond.
92ZEW sources say Hangout Festival’s request for an additional four years is up for consideration nextweek and some vocal residents are beginning to sway the vote to make it go away. Â An anonymous Gulf Shores resident created an online petition to keep the festival and says the purpose of the petition is to “provide a majority voice for the local Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and surrounding area residents who support this annual event.”
If you’re a South Baldwin resident that wants to see the festival continue and have enjoyed a positive economic impact, then you can ‘sign’ the petition here. Â One thousand signatures are needed by May 19.
Note the petition is for South Baldwin residents only, because the council looks to voters in their own district for decisionmaking.
