Bring your family, a lawn chair, a camera and enjoy the free entertainment.

Attendees are asked to respect the beach. Rules are governed by the State Parks Department and are in effect during the event. Everything packed in should be packed out. Help minimize the impact on the Grayland beach. Avoid soft beach areas with your vehicles as a tow can be very costly. Park clear of the ribboned off area and leave room for cars to get through.
