“City of­fi­cers have reviewed and ap­plied feed­back from last year’s event and we are thrilled to of­fer lo­cal kids an even big­ger, bet­ter event in 2018.

“The Youth Beach Party is one of the City’s most pop­u­lar an­nual events for young peo­ple.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity for our younger res­i­dents to con­nect, re­lax and en­joy a day just for them.”
