What can I expect from Summer of 1776?
Welcome to the first annual Summer of 1776, a 4th of July celebration and beach club experience like no other.
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a crystal clear lagoon and a large beach area. There will be cash bars throughout (credit card accepted too), an assortment of food truck options, beach merchandise, and plenty of places for you and your friends to hang out, whether on the beach or on the lawn.
At 5:30 p.m. the live concert begins with Blink-281 (a blink-182 tribute band) and country music singer Tim Montana will start soon after that. The center of the lagoon will be open to all guests over 18 to relax in a tube to enhance the concert experience. With Lago Mar’s state of the art lighting in the lagoon, guests are welcome to enjoy the concert into the evening time from the comfort of their tubes in the lagoon.
At around 9 p.m., an epic patriotic drone light show will commence.
Throughout the event, there will be non-stop music! When the bands aren’t playing, we have a day time and night time DJ to keep the party live. There will never be a dull moment.
This event is friendly to all ages but only 21 and up will be served alcohol. Keep in mind that this event will be loud and crowded and fun, so plan accordingly!
We will be selling all your beach necessities, like towels, hats, and approved floats to enjoy the concert from the lagoon. No need to bring anything unless you want to. Outside food, beverage and weapons of any kind are not allowed on premise.
We highly recommend the VIP experience, which will give you access to designated seating, free drinks, bottle service, and access to the VIP clubhouse.
