Take part in the lively kids’ carnival on Mondays, which offers an array of inflatables, face painting, games, and more, or enjoy free fireworks over the ocean on most Wednesdays. Other nights feature walking street entertainment and open-air concerts by the sea. And, the best part is that each of these events are free to the public! Just venture down to the Boardwalk to see what all the fun is about.



Movies Under the Stars | Market Common | Ongoing (Thursdays)

Kick back and relax after a day full of fun beach activities with a family friendly movie screening at Valor Park.
