Bethany Beach Holds Fireworks on Labor Day Weekend

fireworks are lit up in the night sky over a beach

The summer is coming to a close, but our events will continue.  Normally held on Thursday nights in the summer, the Seaside Concert Series will move to Saturday and Sunday nights in September and October and begin at 6:30 instead of 7:30.

The upcoming Labor Day weekend will be an exception and bridge the gap between the two seasons.  The last Thursday concert will be held this Thursday, August 31stand feature the boy-band tribute Larger Than Life. Weekend concerts begin this Saturday with performances by classic rock band Kategory 5 on September 2nd and Beach Boys tribute Still Surfin on Sunday, September 3rd.  All shows will begin at 7:30. Fireworks will mark the finale to the summer concerts with a display following the Sunday concert. They will be launched off the beach at Wellington Parkway.

The movie Maverick will launch Friday night movies this Friday, September 1st.  This movie will be shown on the beach.  The remaining three September movies will move to the Bandstand. September 15th features Yesterday which was inspired by The Beatles.  The concert on September 16th will piggyback on that with a performance by Beatlemania Again. Start time is still dusk or sunset, but plan to arrive around 7:00 since it gets dark earlier now.

Bonfires on the Beach will replace Friday movies beginning October 6th.  They will run on Friday nights from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. through October 27th.  The Town will provide free marshmallows, roasting sticks, and glow bracelets while supplies last.   All events are dependent on weather and beach conditions.

Trolley service will continue through mid-September with the normal operating schedule: 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. with no service daily between 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  Parking meters and pay stations end on September 15th.

The Town sponsors many free events for the benefit of the community.   For details, visit the Town website under Activities or any of the links to our social media sites.
