Orange Beach, Alabama (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
On the weekend of August 23 - 26 the first SEC Beach Fest is taking place on the beaches of Alabama. Scheduled to attend are the legendary coaches including Gene Stallings, Pat Dye and Phil Fulmer. Current coaches; Nick Saban, Les Miles and Gene Chizik will also attend. Musical acts The B52's and Dr. John will be in concert.
The award winning Caribe Resort will be hosting numerous fans from across the country. Fans who book the "SEC Special" will receive a stay in a luxury waterfront condominium along with tickets to the entire event.
This event is a "first" since it will be for an entire conference to kick-off their football season. Members of the Alabama Gulf Coast Visitors Bureau and the SEC created a marketing relationship over a year ago and the resort towns of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach have been prominently placed in recent conference football advertising.
Stan Szapiel, the General Manager of Caribe Resort, stated "This event is great for the whole family, but especially the die-hard football fans of the Southeastern Conference." Caribe Resort is a major host of the event and they have created special lodging packages online for the attendees. The SEC BeachFest tickets will be limited but fans who stay with sponsors like Caribe Resort will be given four tickets with each unit.

They are a full service resort with a 5-star waterfront restaurant, jet ski rentals, over 40,000 sq. feet of pools and located on a sugar white sand peninsula.
