Building on the success of the free Summer Concerts On The Waterfront series, the Port of Los Angeles has expanded the four remaining performances to include magic, juggling, puppetry and other youth-focused entertainment.
“Thursday night concerts on the waterfront have become an instant hit among residents and visitors,” said Cynthia Ruiz, Deputy Executive Director of External Relations for the Port. “Attendance has increased weekly and the feedback has been extremely positive. To build on the success, we wanted to include additional family-friendly entertainment before the music begins to entertain the crowds that arrive earlier and make a full night of the event.”
Additional entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. prior to the four remaining concerts, which all start at 7 p.m. Free parking is available at Harbor Boulevard and Swinford Street as well as at the Catalina Express parking lot.
