The 2013 “REAL.FUN.BEACHFEST” (Tween Music Fest) will be held on June 1, 2013 and will feature some big names in the “tween” music demographic. The intention is to kick off the 2013 tourist season with a bang, and the event will be held at the newly constructed Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheater.
The timing of the music fest was carefully chosen. Typically, the first two weeks of June are slower than the rest of the season, before things really start to gain momentum. So big events like this can help draw crowds a little earlier on. That means lower rates, cooler weather, and less crowded beaches – so everybody wins!
The music these artists play is all targeted towards kids, making it very family-friendly, and a perfect match for all the fun activities and amenities right here at are Sandpiper Beacon. Live concerts, waterslides, beach scavenger hunts, mini golf, and a lazy river ride… Sounds like a good time, right?
