From Memorial Day to Labor Day, Long Beach will offer hundreds of
free or low cost cultural programs, sports activities and special
events throughout the City. "100 Days of Summer" is a partnership
between Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine and the Long Beach
Convention and Visitor's Bureau to promote opportunities to "stay
and play" in Long Beach.
"100 Days of Summer is full of fun and exciting events right here
in Long Beach," Mayor Bob Foster said. "You and your family will
enjoy hundreds of wonderful activities, including movies, concerts,
sports, camps and classes all summer long."
To get things started, the premiere '80s (and '90s) tribute band
Knyght Ryder will perform a free concert at Marine Stadium, on
Appian Way between Second and Colorado Streets on Friday, May 23,
from 6 to 8 pm.
Knyght Ryder has performed with the stars of MadTV and Saturday
Night Live and most recently became the opening act for George
Lopez. These rockers from Long Beach play everything from Guns N'
Roses to The Cure to Run-DMC.
The fun will begin at 5 pm with a Kids Zone leading up to the
concert at 6 pm. Admission is free. Concertgoers are
encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnic dinners and relax
on the lawn for a great evening of family fun. Several food trucks
