Rather than killing these magnificent animals, they were brought to Alligator Alley for a second chance at life.

Alligator Alley provides over 20 acres of natural cypress swamp habitat for their rescued gators. Alligators at the farm can feed, swim, sunbathe, mate, and nest, unmolested – and you can watch!

Mobile, AL might not leap to mind when you think about the U.S. and Cuba – but maybe it should.

Mobile has been trading with Havana for over 315 years. Havana was Mobile’s biggest trading partner until the embargo. For many years, the two cities exchanged all manner of necessary goods: cotton, timber, paper, copper, salt, and more. Perhaps more surprising, Cuba’s love of baseball can be traced back to Mobile’s Spring Hill College.

150 years ago, two Cuban brothers returned to Havana after attending Mobile’s Spring Hill College and started Havana’s first baseball team. The rest, as I’m sure you know, is history.

Historic Fort Gaines, on Alabama’s Dauphin Island, is one of the best preserved, 19th century shoreline fortifications on the east coast. Best known for its Civil War role during the Battle of Mobile Bay, the fort is now a historic site offering living history tours.

Fort Gaines has been guarding the entrance to Mobile Bay since 1862. The fort’s well-preserved ramparts on the eastern tip of Dauphin Island command panoramic views of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Work began on the fort in 1821 but cost overruns and other difficulties didn’t see it finished until 1862 – after it was captured by Southern troops!

Fort Gaines Historic Site consists of five buildings inside the fort’s exterior walls, with tunnel systems throughout. Corner bastions with spiral stone staircases lead to cannons that were actually used in the Battle of Mobile Bay. There are also “disappearing guns” and bunker systems that were added to the fort during the Spanish-American War.

The band is also called to perform at important events outside the area, such as the Louisiana World Exposition in New Orleans, for example.

The Mobile Symphonic Pops Band is made up of adult, volunteer woodwind, brass, and percussion players. The band is currently led by Conductor David Dueitt. Dueitt is a retired band teacher and director with more than 30 years of experience working with music education programs. He has also served as an adjudicator for countless concert and marching band competitions, as well as directing a number of All-State and County Honor Bands.

Performances from the group feature both classical compositions and newer, often show, tunes. 2017 is the Mobile Symphonic Pops Band’s 40th concert season. Though much of the season is already past, seven more opportunities to see them perform remain.
