IN THIS WEEK’S RUNDOWN – NEW BUSES, FIREWORKS SHOW, AND FISHING TOURNAMENTS

We’re more than halfway through the year, friends. And this city has been nothing short of amazing.

Countless developments happened all around town. Who’s saying we’re stopping now? Check out these cool new buses we got.

The city began receiving the first of several new buses for the Wave Transit System’s fleet. This month, we should be seeing four of these 35-foot beauties on the streets serving the community. And next year, we’re gonna get five more.

I’m personally holding out for the driverless min-bus option. Those will be here before you know it.


Oh wow, the support for the Fireworks at Cooper Riverside Park Sunday night was overwhelming, hundreds of Mobilians gathered to celebrate.

Watch the full fireworks show here.
