The live music returns as the celebration continues Sunday at the OWA Island Amphitheater as well as kid’s activities throughout Downtown. Once again, OWA’s partnering with the Foley First Baptist Church Missions Program to donate all registration proceeds from the car show held during Saturday’s festivities. “The OWA Labor Day Car Show is always a signature event for us, and we look forward to once again supporting our local community as the summer comes to an end,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s Director of Marketing/PR. “Best of all we’re able to set up and enjoy these great events at OWA in a spacious, outdoor setting.” While the event is free to enjoy as a spectator, guests are welcome to register their rides up through Saturday morning for a chance to win!
