It’s Time for KidzTime at Broadway at the Beach

This year's 18th Annual KidzTime Festival at Broadway at the Beach is shaping up to be a fun filled, high energy and memory making event! From games and giveaways, live entertainment and a fun dance party, your little one can enjoy activities all while just being a kid!

New this year, we're hoping this event will help kids in our area far past the last Saturday in February!

How? Broadway at the Beach is partnering with Help 4 Kids and during the event, volunteers will be collecting much needed items for their Backpack Buddies program. So as you are making your way to the festival, you are encouraged to bring along something from their list. Each donation will help kids in our community stay healthy and not hungry!

As you're helping with your donations, we've got someone else helping save the day!

Marvel's Captain America will swoop in giving kids an opportunity to get up close and personal with the big screen and comic book hero! Bring your phones and snap away and make sure you use #KidzFestMB when posting!

With more than 50 vendors offering free activities for the kids, your day will be jam packed as you move along inside and outside our KidzTime tent located in Parking Lot 17 on the 21st Avenue North side of Broadway near WonderWorks and the Broadway 360 Observation Wheel. From feeding farm animals, to having their face painted, riding in a train to jumping in bounce houses, your little one can run, jump and play the entire time from 11am – 4pm.

We've also got live entertainment hitting the stage, with family friendly performances emcee'd by DJ Corey Holden! And don't forget to grab a light snack or drink at the event!

It's a day you don't want to miss! So mark your calendars for this year's 18th Annual KidzTime Festival on Saturday, February 23rd from 11am to 4pm! See you there!

Mission: Valentine’s Day Guy Gifts

Mission: Valentine's Day Guy Gifts

Place: Broadway at the Beach

Date: February 14th

(Que the Mission Impossible Theme Song)

Do you choose to accept this mission?

Okay… maybe it doesn't take the stunts of the Tom Cruise blockbusters to shop for this year's Valentine gift for your favorite guy, but when it comes to the day of love, the guys in our lives aren't always the easiest to shop for! Broadway at the Beach wants to help change that and we've put together a list of ideas sure to help you find something perfect for your favorite guy this Valentine's Day!

Forget the flowers… get him food!

Whether it's a bouquet of Beef Jerky that you make from the Beef Jerky Store or a bucket of freshly popped popcorn of his favorite flavors from Sweet South Popcorn Company or even a box of chocolates from any one of Broadway's sweet stops (River Street Sweets, Wee R Sweetz or Kilwins), the way to his heart may be through his stomach!

Serve up some shady & sporty style!

There are a plethora of shops to explore and pick up something for that man of yours at Broadway. For the sports fanatics, it doesn't get much better than a store actually called Sports Fanatics where you can pick up his favorite team's gear. From collegiate to the pros from the courts, the diamond and fields, you are sure to find something that will have him cheering. Sports not his thing? Why not add some designer to his wardrobe with the help of Sunglass Hut where you can pick up the perfect pair of shades including Ray-Ban, Costa and Oakley!

Order Some Grub & Pour On The Love!

We have already mentioned the gifts from some of Broadway's light bite eateries, but when it comes to enjoying a Valentine's night out, a great meal and a cold brew will get you some extra Valentine's points! From burgers, international cuisine, seafood or southern, Broadway has it all. Pull up a seat at American Tap House, The Grumpy Monk or Liberty Brewery & Grill and treat him to a seasonal sip of his favorite brew. Get your grub on by firing up the hibachi at Yamato's Japanese Steakhouse or slow down and enjoy the sweet and savory southern cooking of Paula Deen's Family Kitchen!

So there's your Guy's Valentine's Gift Guide mission from Broadway, do you choose to accept it?

Happy Valentine's Day from Broadway at the Beach!

A Limited Engagement At Legends In Concert: Church Basement Ladies

The holidays are over and the decorations are coming down. There's a chill in the air and let's face it, sometimes the subtle post-Christmas gloom of January sets in causing some of us to hibernate this time of year.

But this January, you have a chance to laugh your way out of the seasonal blahs at Broadway at the Beach's Legends in Concert during the limited engagement of Church Basement Ladies!

So what exactly is Church Basement Ladies?

Church Basement Ladies is a national touring show presented by Legends in Concert and Troupe America, Inc. that uses the popular Scandinavian Lutheran humor writings of "The Lutheran Ladies," Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson, authors of a host of humorous books, the most famous being GROWING UP LUTHERAN.

The show features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fundraiser, and, of course, a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying and tolerating each other as the true "steel magnolias" of the church. Funny and down to earth, these ladies will be familiar to any audience as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.

You catch one of eight performances January 16th - January 20th. For more information and to book your seat, click here.

So before you choose to stay in and give in to those annual winter woes waiting for the first glimpse of Spring, and enjoy a night of laughter with the Church Basement Ladies at Legends in Concert.
