From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Long Beach will offer hundreds of free or low-cost cultural programs, sports activities and special events throughout the City. “100 Days of Summer” is a partnership among Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine and the Long Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau to promote opportunities to “stay and play” in Long Beach.
”I encourage all residents to enjoy the wonderful activities, including movies, concerts, sports, aquatics and cultural programs being held this summer throughout the City,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “Everyone should visit www.100daysofsummer.org often to see all the fun and exciting ways to stay and play in Long Beach this summer.”
To get things started, “Flashpants” will perform a free concert at Marine Stadium, 5255 Paoli Way on Appian Way between Second and Colorado Streets, on Friday, May 27, 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Flashpants is a high-energy band that combines audience interaction with ’80s music that will have people dancing, laughing and making new friends all night long.
The fun begins at 5:00 pm with a Kids Zone, leading up to the concert at 6:00 pm. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnic dinners and relax on the lawn for a great evening of family fun. Several food trucks will be available.
Starting May 27, www.100daysofsummer.org and www.lbparks.org will provide great ideas for fun without having to travel far or spend a lot of money. Listings will include free concerts and movies; Long Beach Sea Festival events; the El Dorado Nature Center; Rancho Los Cerritos and Rancho Los Alamitos historic sites; ideas for spontaneous fun like biking, golf, tennis, kayaking and swimming; free drop-in youth and teen programs; and much more.
