Pier Park Summer Concert Series Starts TONIGHT

by June 2, 2011 • 6 comments

Every summer you look forward to it:  chillin’ with friends, fresh salty breeze on your face, kids laughing and smooth tunes emanate from the amphitheater.  The 11 week summer Pier Park Concerts in the Park series begins tonight with Beach Mice.

The summer concert series is on Thursday evenings and starts at 7 pm.  They usually break about 8 pm for prizes and giveaways, the resume playing until around 9 pm.  In the past, they’ve rarely cancelled a show.

The series is located at the Aaron Bessant Park amphitheater.  Aaron Bessant park is adjacent to Pier Park – on the west side of the property.  Just follow the cars, music and people.

Does anyone know what sort of music these bands play? Or are they all cover bands that play random songs?

I have several questions. What is the price of admission? Can you bring non-alcoholic beverages or snacks? Is the venue appropriate for young children?

Hi Debbie, this is a free event. Yes, you can bring a cooler with whatever you want in it. It’s great for kids. There are always tons of kids running around.

Hi, I would also like some info on what type of music these bands play. We will be in town for the July 7th show and would like to know about Heritage in particular. We have children of all ages with us and need to know if it is something that would interest them as well as the adults.
Thanks so much!
