The 100 Days of Summer is winding down with a finale concert by the band Trinity, who will play tributes to the rock sounds of Styx, Foreigner and Journey. The event will be held at Marine Stadium, 5255 Paoli Way, on Friday, August 24, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Beginning at 5 p.m., attendees can bring their family to the Kid Zone and purchase dinner with convenient food trucks, including the Cheddar Wheel (quesadillas, nachos and more), Chowdown Food (burgers and sandwiches) and Yogurtland.

“I am proud of the nine-year partnership between Parks, Recreation and Marine and the Long Beach Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to promote “100 Days of Summer” events on a user-friendly website calendar,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “Families have benefitted from knowing about all the great free recreation options available to them throughout the city to ‘Stay and Play in Long Beach.’”

Trinity is the result of multi-instrumentalist Rich Graham pulling together players to replicate three of rock’s heavyweight bands. He along with vocalist Stu Saddoris, guitarist Sean Michael Clegg, drummer Ty Dennis and bassist Adam Levy, deliver powerful, definitive versions of the greatest hits of the three bands in individual sets.

“This concert is the final event in the ‘100 Days of Summer’ program for 2018,” said Parks, Recreation and Marine Director Geraldo Mouet. “Since Memorial Day weekend, residents have enjoyed free concerts and movies, extended recreation hours at City parks, El Dorado Nature Center and historic site events, and spontaneous fun like hiking, biking, golf, tennis, and swimming.”
