GULF SHORES, Alabama – 500 people lined an enormous table in front of the beach pavilion at the Gulf State Park.  This invite-only dinner marking the approaching anniversary of the April 20, 2010, Gulf Coast Oil Spill and was a celebration of recovery.

“Supper on the Sand: A Celebration of the Gulf” featured a menu inspired by the farm-to-table concept showcasing Gulf Seafood and local produce. Guy Fieri, host of NBC’s “Minute to Win It” and Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins & Dives” as well as “Guy’s Big Bite”, served as the event’s special guest host. Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, Congressman Jo Bonner and several other elected officials attended the event in support of the Gulf’s comeback.

In the sand, just south of the Gulf State Park Pavilion, a 175-yard-long, white-clothed table stood parallel to the water. The menu included gumbo, oysters, royal red shrimp and crab claws — seafood straight from the Gulf of Mexico. (Click here for the menu)

Like everyone along the Gulf Coast, Kaiser Realty and the CVB are monitoring the clean-up of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and relying on official updates from the Unified Command response team and local emergency management officials for information. We will continue to post confirmed updates on this page as they become available.

  • The Alabama Department of Public Health lifted the swimming advisory for gulf waters off Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan. However, the department warns that there may still be sporadic oil on or near the beaches and discourages individuals from entering the water if there is visible oil present. Click here to read the press release published by the health department.
  • Wind and wave action are the primary factors affecting where remaining emulsified oil appears. The cleaning crews are working to remove the oil effects as they occur and beach cleaning machines continue to rake the beaches nightly. Our beaches are open and swimming with caution is permitted.
  • Since the permanent capping of the well, no new oil has entered the gulf waters. With no new oil flowing into the Gulf, the amount of oil reaching our shoreline has decreased.
