Fun Family Evenings at Children’s Beach

From late June through mid-August, the Town of Nantucket is hosting free Friday evening music and films and free Sunday evening concerts at Children’s Beach, an easy walk from downtown. The fun starts at 6pm on Fridays with live music by PJ Moody, followed by karaoke at 7pm. Then, when the sun goes down (around 8:30pm during June & July), the films will be shown on a screen at the Children’s Beach Bandstand. Bring a blanket and a picnic and make an evening of it. The films are G-rated family favorites. Sunday concerts begin at 6pm and feature local favorites like Foggy Roots, The Dunbars, and 4EZ Payments.
