UPDATE FROM THE CITY:
ATTENTION! Due to the inclement weather, tonight’s Make-A-Wish event and the Ric Mango Concert have been postponed. Please join us next week on Monday, July 8 at Riverside Boulevard for this rescheduled event. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The forecast doesn’t look so great, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the first free summer beach concert, which kicks off tonight on Riverside Blvd beach. Full Schedule and Press Release is below, but I am wondering how accessible these concerts will be for everybody with the absence of the boardwalk. Hopefully the city does the right thing, so everybody can enjoy Ric Mango!
PREASE RELEASE: FREE SUMMER BEACH CONCERT SERIES KICK-OFF THIS MONDAY JULY 1st
Join the City of Long Beach on Monday, July 1, 2013 as we kick off the Free Summer Beach Concert Series in Long Beach! At 7:30 pm Make-A-Wish® will recognize the steadfast support the City of Long Beach, its residents & the Long Beach Polar Bears have given to the organization even when facing their own adversity, dealing with the hardships of Super Storm Sandy and its aftermath.
After the Make-A-Wish® presentation Long Islands music legend Ric Mango, who has been performing concerts on the beach since the summer of 1985, will come out of retirement for this one-night-only performance as a special tribute to our Bruised But Not Broken city. His show will start at 8:00 p.m.
Come down to Riverside Boulevard beach and enjoy the magic of our free beach concert as we welcome everyone back to Long Beach! Dont forget your beach chair!
