Summer and Music Presents Bicycle Drive-In

SUMMER AND MUSIC PRESENTS BICYCLE DRIVE-IN
A Bike-friendly Combination Concert and Outdoor Movie Screening
August 10th at 6pm
Park[d] Plaza on 4th Street in the East Village


New this year, the Downtown Long Beach Associates’ Summer and Music (SAM) celebrates the arts with an evening of live music and movies at its inaugural “Bicycle Drive-In,” Saturday, August 10th at 6pm in the Park[d] Plaza across the street from Fingerprints (intersection of Fourth and Elm streets).

The Bicycle Drive-In will kick off at 6pm with three live local bands -- Matteran Ghost, the Dovelles, and Hedgehog Swing.

At 8 p.m., after the live performances and the sunset, organizers will screen Academy Award Nominated French Cartoon The Triplets of Belleville. The film was chosen because of its connection to the event’s theme – bicycling and the Tour de France play a major role in the storyline of this quirky and creative film.

Seating for the event will be lawn style in the parking lot, and attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, low back chairs, or even their bicycle seats to sit on. Picnics are welcome, and food vendors will also be on site. Free bike valet will also be provided.

For more information, call the DLBA at (562) 436.4259 or check out the website: http://www.summerandmusic.com.
