Temperatures are rising, the sun is out and days are getting longer. In the City by the Sea, this means that summer and its myriad of yearly events are just around the corner. If you’re not thinking of a beach getaway, think again!
Nassau Coliseum is known for bringing to Long Island some of the best shows out there. Get ready for a new top-notch production: Cirque du Soleil Volta will be showing from May 17 to June 10, 2018. What makes this performance spectacular is its inspiration in adventure sports and heart-stopping acrobatics.
From May 17 to 20, Long Beach’s Artists in Partnership will host a cabaret festival for the 16th year! You’ll find an exceptional group of musicians, singers and performers telling their cabaret stories and playing good ol’ tunes. Check out the program and pick the day that works for you.
With the weather warming up, it’s only natural everyone is running outdoors. Join the locals on the 8th Annual Young Life 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk on May 19 at 9am. Run along the iconic boardwalk, starting at Grand Boulevard, just 20-minute walk from The Allegria—great way to warm up before the race! Be at the Long Beach Catholic School's Gym at 8am to register ($25).
Start your Memorial Day celebrations early and take a short trip from The Allegria to Jones Beach State Park for the 15th year of the famous Air Show from May 26-27. You’ll be amazed by the incredible performances of the United States Navy Blue Angels and the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds. What’s more, you’ll have a first-row seat to see the F-22 Raptor, a brand-new fighter aircraft.
If you’d rather a longer race, wait until May 27 and take part in the annual 10 mile race across Long Beach, otherwise, sign up for the 5K distance. Both races start at 8am at Magnolia Boulevard and cost $25 or $30 on race day.
There’s no Memorial Day without the tribute to the U.S. military and Long Beach knows exactly how to do it. On May 28 at 10am, head to catch the annual Memorial Day Parade, starting at Ohio Avenue and West Beech Street and continuing to City Hall, at Park Avenue. Cheer on the marching officials and veterans who deserve our respect and appreciation.
