Dig your toes in the sand in Downtown Decatur on Friday, June 15, from 5 to 11 p.m.at the annual Decatur Beach Party returns.  Sponsored by the Decatur Business Association, the event sees 60 tons of sand poured onto Ponce de Leon Avenue, a kids’ board walk with all kinds of fun games, two live bands, dancing on the plaza, a food court, cold beverages and guaranteed great times for all ages.

The Beach Party welcomes headliner Yacht Rock Schooner to help Beach Partiers “get smooth” and slip into a gentle groove for dancing and relaxing on the plaza. And for the younger set, Douglas Brake and the Sizzle, Hiss, Pop Band return for a special kid’s concert.

Tickets are $7 in advance online and $10 at the gate. Child tickets (ages 3-12) are $5 and include all games and activities. Children 2 and under get in free. For more info, visit www.decaturdba.com.
