Summer is in full swing and so is all of the summertime fun and events in and around Indian Rocks Beach and Indian Shores. In addition to enjoying the time spent on our pristine Gulf Shore beaches and warm crystal-clear waters, be sure to leave some time for some special events that are occurring here in the next couple of weeks.
Indian Rocks Beach (IRB) Historical Museum Grand Opening
The Indian Rocks Beach Historical Museum is ready to celebrate its grand opening this Saturday, June 29 from 10a.m. to 2p.m. at Chic-a-Si Park on 4th Avenue. The grand opening coincides with the founding of the City of Indian Rocks Beach in June of 1955.
The ribbon cutting is at 10a.m. and unveils the rebirth of the original beach cottage, as well as all new displays and exhibits. These exhibits include oversized photos that bring history to life and enhanced eye-catching presentations of the artifacts on display. In addition, guests can enjoy some free live music at the pavilion in the park by the Skyway Bluegrass Band. Take some time to enjoy hot dogs, kettle corn, lemonade and ice cream at “old-timey” prices in the park, too. We hope to see you there!
