Live After 5 is a Downtown Long Beach Alliance sponsored event taking place on the Third Thursday of every month from 5pm – 9pm. The monthly event is a free, family and pet-friendly event that will rotate through the downtown districts, bringing live music, art activations, entertainment and opportunities for community engagement throughout.
The Loop on Ocean and Pine will be the hub of each event and will feature music, food and beer garden. The Big Red Bus open-air trolley will circulate between The Loop and the various locations being highlighted for the evening.
Attendees will be able to easily explore downtown, discovering new businesses, enjoying live music and performances, benefit from extended shop hours, food and drink specials, art shows and more.
OPEN AIR TROLLEY
Each of the Live After 5 events will feature a free open-air trolley, transporting attendees between The Loop and the downtown highlighted neighborhood of the month.
Special event related hashtags will be hidden throughout the showcased neighborhood. Attendees will be encouraged to find the hashtags, take photos highlighting that specific Live After 5 event and posting on Instagram/Snapchat/Facebook. Winners will then be selected based on post enthusiasm and awarded gift cards for goods/services at area shops and restaurants.
