Tomorrow, one of our city’s most exciting annual events begins. It’s the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball, featuring the best volleyball players in the world, including many of the athletes who have just finished competing at the Olympics in Rio.
The World Series takes place from August 23-28 at the Alamitos Beach Volleyball Courts at 700 Shoreline Drive, just east of Marina Green and the Shoreline Marina. More information is available at http://wsobv.com/
To celebrate and welcome the competitors to Long Beach, I’m cohosting the 1st Serve Celebration & Movie Night, along with Councilmember Jeannine Pearce and the Convention and Visitors Bureau, Wednesday, Aug. 24, at the Long Beach Terrace Theater Plaza from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
We will screen “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” at 8 p.m, and there will be music, food trucks, free popcorn, and special guests. You can bring along a chair to watch the movie.
Admission is free and the event is open to all. There is free parking at the Convention Center garage.
We’re thrilled to host the World Series of Volleyball and look forward to celebrating with everyone Wednesday night!
