It’s the first Friday of the month which means Long Beach residents got to enjoy some free live music on the Long Beach Town Green.
Long Beach Live hosts Finally First Friday once a month. For seven years now locals visit downtown to enjoy good food, live music, a car show, and the sights and sounds of the friendly city.
Tonight, Magnolia Bayou took over the stage from 7 to 10 p.m. Long Beach Community Affairs Director Jenny Levens said, “Originally it was on Thursdays. This year we moved it to Fridays and we just decided to make it a bigger event. The businesses are doing great so it’s a great economic thing for all our businesses around town. They have people in the restaurants until 10 at night and the businesses down the street, the merchants stay open, too.”
The Long Beach live concert series is sponsored by the Island View Casino. The event runs until October.
