San Pedro Historic Waterfront Business Improvement District (PBID) is pleased to announce a Friday night festive street party celebrating the installation of permanent Tivoli lights in downtown San Pedro and the USS Iowa's arrival to San Pedro. Melding history with charm, "San Pedro's Swingin' Salute" will offer live swing music, vintage dress and food from area restaurants in the heart of downtown San Pedro. The event will be held from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. on Sixth Street, which will be closed and become a "Restaurant Row" between Centre Street and Pacific Avenue. Admission is free. A 7-piece swing band, free swing lessons, and a 1940s searchlight beaming its rays outside the Warner Grand Theatre are just some of the highlights of the evening. San Pedro will be taken back to its heyday!
Tables and chairs will be set up on the street and local restaurants will make popular menu items as well as beer and wine available for purchase. Participating restaurants include: San Pedro Brewing Co, the Whale Ale, Blu at Crowne Plaza LA Harbor Hotel, Limani Taverna, Beach City Grill, 7th St. Chophouse, Baramee Thai, Happy Diner, Niko's Pizzeria, Off the Vine, Mishi's Strudel Bakery and Cafe, Porky's BBQ, Sacred Grounds and Taxco Restaurant.
The inviting combination of the 1940s swing theme, live music and food, with the installation of Tivoli lights strung over Sixth and Seventh streets, is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
The event is perfectly poised amidst Independence Week celebrations, a reunion of USS Iowa veterans, and the exciting opening of the battleship USS Iowa on Saturday, July 7.
