Eighth District Councilmember Al Austin, Long Beach Airport, the Aquarium of the Pacific, Cultural Alliance Long Beach and the Virginia Village Business Association are co-hosting a Second Sunday event in Virginia Village, along Long Beach Boulevard between 53rd and 56th streets on Sunday, July 13 from 3pm to 6pm.
This month’s event will feature the Aquarium on Wheels from the Aquarium of the Pacific, as well as a mobile video-gaming lounge and the Safe Moves Bike Rodeo for children. There will also be art and music up and down the street. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
Second Sundays in the Village kicked off last June as a free community event organized in partnership between Austin and the Virginia Village Business Association. The focus of the event is to highlight the revitalized Long Beach Boulevard corridor in north Long Beach while fostering a stronger partnership between the neighborhoods and the local businesses.
“Community interest in Virginia Village and its Second Sundays event is growing,” Austin said. “It is a great way to activate the businesses and residents in yet another part of the Eighth District.”
Virginia Village derives its name from the history of this area, which was known as Virginia City before it was annexed by the City of Long Beach in 1924.
