There are a number of ways to snag ducats to these two events. Of course, you could always move to Gulf Shores, backdate your address and convince the folks at Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism that you’ve lived there for years, thus making you eligible for the tickets handed out to residents.

Or you can acquire tickets by booking accommodations through Gulf Shores and Orange Beach lodging partners.

Or you can go online and try your luck at acquiring ducats from the limited ticket inventory going up Friday morning Sept. 24.

There are two online portals for your free ticket quest – and For both sites the freebie fun begins at 11 a.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Central Time.
