Fun Family Evenings at Children’s Beach

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.
