[ARCHIVED] Waves of Information for the Week of July 9th

Welcome to Waves of Information Galveston for the week of July 9th! 

Didn't get enough fireworks on the 4th? Don't forget - Stay & Play fireworks are happening all summer with shows every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. through Labor Day!

These fireworks shows are sponsored by the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau and are meant to encourage people to stay through Sunday night to help ease the congestion leaving the Island on Sunday's! Each show is held at 37th and Seawall beginning each Sunday at 9:00 p.m.. Take the family, secure your pets, and enjoy the show!

Do you love outdoor concerts under the stars? Every Tuesday, the Galveston Beach Band has a show for you! 

Join the Galveston Beach Band every Tuesday evening through August 14th at 7:30 PM for a weekly outdoor summer pop band concert. This year is the 90th Anniversary of the Summer Pop Band Concerts. Every concert is FREE & offers great musical entertainment for the entire family! Mr. Frank Incaprera Jr. leads the Galveston Beach Band, which is just as much a part of Galveston summers as snow cones, flip flops, & trips to the beach. Join your neighbors, friends, & family by attending band performances at the historic Eugenia & George Sealy Pavilion at Mary Moody Northern Plaza located at 24th Street and Sealy, across from Rosenberg Library. 

We will have a couple of streets closed downtown this Saturday for the 6th Sixth Annual Albatross Old Smokey Throwdown! 

The Sixth Annual Albatross Old Smokey Throwdown returns July 14, 2018, at 21st and Ball Street.
