Entertainment

Enjoy a day full of live music from Jelly of the Month Club, The Beat Buds, Dreaming of You (Selena tribute band), and more.

It doesn't end with music, take in a full-on kid-friendly dance party, puppet shows, flower crown making, science and magic shows, bounce houses, photo booths, and so, so, much more.

2019 Entertainment

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!

Mista Cookie Jar (aka C.J. Pizarro) is a children’s music performer/multi-instrumentalist/music & video producer extraordinaire. 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.”

Image result for bounce house kidsObstacle courses, bounce castles, ball pits, all the things kiddo dreams are made of – we’ll have them at Littlepalooza.

 

Check out several different interactive art stations throughout the day including mural painting, live screen printing, and more.

FAQs

How much does it cost?

Just $15 per adult (13 and up) ticket.  Includes admission, a gift bag, loads of free samples, tons of entertainment, and lots of opportunities for the littles to try new activities.

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, there will be several free activities where we encourage tipping, like face painting for example. 

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.
