Labor Day is right around the corner, and for a lot of people that marks the official end of the lazy days of summer. The kids head back to school and the days start getting shorter.
How will your family finish up its summer? Will you fade slowly back into your fall routine, or close out with one last weekend of warm evenings and lively entertainment fueled by street performers and rockin' bands?
If you'd like to have one more fun-filled summer weekend, head to Broadway at the Beach. Here, Labor Day is much more than just a celebration of summer's end.
Legends In Concert is moonwalking its way through a weekend celebration of the King of Pop's birthday (August 29). From August 29-31, Michael Jackson fans can catch extraordinary tribute artist J Lucas strutting his stuff. The final summer shows at Legends guarantee a thriller every night!
On Friday, August 29, the promenades of Broadway will be alive with music and laughter. At Center Court, you'll hear the giggles of small children as they delight in the free face painting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Then stroll over to the Heroes Harbor stage where the popular Mr. Nigel's Music show will be enchanting all ages from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. It's a bet that everyone in your family will be intrigued by the Living Statues strolling around from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. But be sure to make time to head to Celebrity Square at 7:30 p.m. when country rocker Ashley Martin takes the stage.
