2019 Entertainment

Our fave aerialists are back again! Complete with aerial silks classes, Aerial Hoop classes, Cirque Style Entertainment, Aerial Fabric, Aerial hoop, Aerial hammock, Aerial cube, LED Aerial and more!

Jelly of the Month Club started when Todd Forman (Sublime) and Bert Susanka (The Ziggens/Astronaut Love triangle) had the idea of putting together a super group combined with different members of bands they had both played with over the years. 


The main focus is on writing fun G rated music, the type of fun for the whole family! They have songs ranging from stories about making friends, to a song about waffles. 

The BeatBuds create children’s music with a contemporary sound familiar to adults. Their songs entertain kids and resonate with the parents too. Through the use of major and minor keys and rhythmic and melody exploration, The BeatBuds compose and perform catchy tunes that are rich in both spirit and message.
 

“DREAMING OF YOU”is one of the most entertaining SELENA tribute bands around.They’ bring the best of Selena’s Classics and much more so get ready to dance!

With his family band, Mista Cookie Jar & the Chocolate Chips, they’ve toured all over the US promoting their blend of Urban-Island-Folky-Rock & Roll for the Inner Child. Fusing audio style and visual lyricism, tradition and innovation, Mista Cookie Jar unites a rockstar excitement with the warmth of family music.

Local musicians will lead sing-alongs in our chill storytime tent throughout the day.

What’s a music festival without flower crowns? We’ll have all the supplies on hand to make your very own flower crown so you can ‘gram it up in style at the event and then take it home with you. ($12 per flower crown at the event, $10 presale)

We wouldn’t dare hold a family festival without face painting and balloon twisting. Your littles will have plenty of opportunity for all the face painting they can handle, plus a kid-friendly “tattoo parlor.”

    Where do I park?

    Follow the signs. You’ll see the entrance to the park along with parking behind the Lowes in the Long Beach Towne Center. Parking is free, though heads up: you may have to walk just a bit (about a 5-7 minute walk) as parking begins to fill up.

    Do not park at the Wal-Mart parking lot. 

    What can I bring?

    Do bring: Water. Strollers. Blankets for sitting on the ground. Sunblock.  Skateboard for the skate park area. 

    Do not bring: Pets. Ice chests. Drones. 

    Can I bring snacks?

    We’re parents too. We get it. those kids are snacking machines. You can certainly bring snacks, but we ask that you not pack a full meal since there will be food vendors on site as well.

    Can I buy tickets the day-of?

    Unlikely. We’ll let you know as we get closer, but it’s not a good idea to count on it. 

    Do I need cash? 

    We’d recommend it. Though most vendors take cards, and there will be several free activities – things tend to go quicker with things like raffle tickets and face painting when you have cash.

    Can we leave and come back?

    Sure. We know there’s nap time and all sorts of reasons why this might happen. Not a problem. 

    Who is behind this event? 

    Littlepalooza is produced by LB Littles, which was created to give parents a directory of all things they need to know for raising kids in and around Long Beach. 

    I want to participate! 

    Fantastic. Head here and drop us a line. We’re happy to talk to more sponsors, volunteers, entertainment… you name it. 

    Will there be more events?

    You bet. Stay tuned for our full calendar coming soon.  

    I have a different question.

    Send us a message here and we’ll get right back to you with an answer, so long as the question isn’t related to calculus equations.
