Whether you are a Long Beach native, or a passerby near Orange County, nothing compares to taking in the eclectic community of Long Beach through its art and music. Basking in the sun, relaxing with the sand beneath one’s toes is not unusual for those who live and breathe the salty air of Long beach, but the true distinction in the culture is the eccentric and wildly entertaining style of Long Beach’s summer events.
Take a look at the interesting events below and see if you can step out of your shell and onto a dance floor!
Bicycle Drive-In | August 2, 6:00-11:00 PM
Long Beach’s award-winning Summer and Music (SAM) Festival is back for its sixth season along with their second annual Bicycle Drive-In this Saturday from 6:00 to 11:00 pm. If you are looking for a mellow atmosphere to cruise your bike into, this is the place. Featuring a fusion of music, movies, and the ever present biking culture, the Drive-In will feature a concert in a decorated campground inspired by the romantic film “Moonrise Kingdom”, as well as a screening of the film after the live performances. Bring your bikes as bike valet is free, and picnics and blankets are more than welcome. Food vendors will also have delicious treats for sale and craft beer will be available by Kress Market. Come for the ride, stay for the show!
