Memorial Weekend Fiesta Hermosa to feature beach concerts

Musicians will perform on Pier Avenue, in The Garden, and on the beach.

Fiesta Hermosa returns to full strength this Memorial Day weekend, following a slimmed down fiesta last Labor Day Weekend. But to alleviate crowding downtown, the carnival rides and art exhibits are being relocated up Pier Avenue, at the Community Center.

The popular downtown Garden will go upscale with craft beer from local breweries, big kid games, and reserved seats near the stage that come with drink service. 

But the most significant change to the signature Hermosa event  will be the addition of three nights of music on the beach, featuring Redondo Dead, Deja Vu, Ghost in the Machine, Just Pretending, Mirage and Live from Earth. The concerts will take place Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 4 to 9 p.m. on the south side of the pier.
