Friday Night Kickoff Party & Concert

Bathing Beauties might be vying for the best dressed on Saturday, but Friday night we’re counting on you to bring the vintage style. Join us for our Friday night kick-off at Beach Central for live music, great craft beers and the introductions of our 2016 Bathing Beauties contestants.

Each year we award winners of our various events a coveted Beach Revue sash and for this year, we’re making one extra for the “best dressed” style of the night. Our judges will be canvasing the crowd to award one lucky winner!


Friday, May 20, 2016: 6-10 pm

6 pm: Beer Garden and Vendors open at Beach Central
6:30 pm: Free Southern Star Bombshell Blone Tasting by Southern Star Brewing Company

8-10- pm: Southern Star Brewing Company collaboration beer and after-party at Beerfoot


Galveston’s own Harbors Over Highways will take the stage Friday, May 20th and 7 p.m. for the event kickoff party. A group of five musicians who’ve planted their roots in Galveston, each have enjoyed musical comradeship in various bands. The sound of HoH, as they are often referred to, has been a culmination of paying dues in dingy bars and Texas ice houses, all creating their unique Gulf Coast sound. Shades of Americana and Alt Country blossom as Kevin Anderson, John ‘Mudd’ Kovacevich, Broc Adams, Clark Duhon and Hunter St. Marie take the stage.
