Free Summer Concerts At Huntington Beach Central Park Return
Though we celebrate the endless summer all year 'round here in Huntington Beach, the official first day of the season lands on June 20. On its heels launches the 43rd Annual HB Concert Band Summer Series 2016—a free 11-week seasonal event that brings live music to Huntington Beach Central Park every Sunday, 5-6:30 p.m., June 26 through September 4. It's been doing so since 1973.
Concerts jam on the band shell stage behind the library, at the corner of Goldenwest and Talbert. Ready your blankets, chairs, and picnic baskets, and take a look at who's playing this summer (printable scheduled available here).
