Manhattan Beach is located in sunny Southern California . With the great California summer weather, July is a time for the city of Manhattan Beach to celebrate. Surprisingly, many activities are not at the beach. Guests at the Sea View Inn have many activities to keep them busy.
Concerts in Polliwog Park
Every July, One West Bank presents a series of concerts in Polliwog Park on Sundays in the park amphitheater. The concerts are free, and all you need is a snack and a blanket to sit on. Each concert features opening bands or performances, followed by the main group performance. The bands for July cover a lot of music genres. A performance to our troops starts out the series. This is followed by the Pettybrakers on July 7th. Queen Nation, quite a change, is next on the 14th followed by Lucky Ones on July 21. Rounding out July is Speedbuggy USA. Guests can download a map online that shows how to find the park and the concert area.
July 4th Swim Party
Each 4th of July, the Begg Community Pool holds a party. This party is for those kids under 12 and runs from 10 AM to 2 PM. The party includes treats, drink and a variety of pool games all for an entrance fee of five dollars. The kids should have a great time under the sun with all their friends.
July 4th Fireworks
At the Manhattan Beach seaside lagoon, there is a picnic and fireworks show held each year. And, of course, there is the lagoon to play in.
