Seating Available?

In 2017, Palisades Charter High School moved us from the football stadium (Stadium by the Sea) to the baseball field.   Bring blankets or low beach chairs without stick legs so not to block the view of other concert-goers, and to help preserve the field surface.

Join us in the Kids Area this year for loads of fun, including spin art, glitter tattoos, balloons, face painting, a bounce house, and much more! Activities start at 4pm!
