City of LB’s ‘100 Days of Summer’ series to kick off on Memorial Day

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Long Beach offers hundreds of free or low-cost cultural programs, sports activities and special events throughout the city through 100 Days of Summer, a partnership between the City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine and the Long Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau.
“100 Days of Summer is your complete guide to summer fun here in Long Beach,” said Mayor Bob Foster. “We have more than 800 events, including movies, music, sports, camps and classes, so you will have plenty of fun and exciting activities to keep you and your family entertained.”
100 Days of Summer will kick off on Friday, May 24 with a performance by Southern California cover band The Basix. The band covers the likes of Earth Wind and Fire, the Rolling Stones and The Doobie Brothers, the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, KC and the Sunshine Band, No Doubt, Maroon 5 and Justin Timberlake.
The event will take place at Marina Vista Park, on Appian Way between Second and Colorado streets, beginning at 5pm with bouncers, face-painting, caricaturists and balloon artists– leading up to the Basix performance at 6pm. Admission is free. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnic dinners. Several food trucks will also be available.
The 100 Days of Summer campaign encourages residents to “stay and play” in Long Beach. The website is a one-stop information source for detailed suggestions of summer activities in Long Beach every day from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The website is full of program listings for free concerts and movies, Long Beach Sea Festival events, the El Dorado Nature Center, Rancho Los Cerritos and Rancho Los Alamitos historic sites, and ideas for spontaneous fun like biking, golf, tennis, kayaking, swimming, and free drop-in youth and teen programs, and much more.
