Event Description

Salute to Summer is an unabashed “Star-Spangled” salute to great music from the past and present, good food, and our American military!  Live entertainment on three outdoor stages includes music of different styles and eras.  Military bands are featured as well in an acknowledgement of their sacrifices to preserve our freedom!


The “Heroes Walk” display stretches along the boardwalk from 17th to 31st Streets.  Original essays written by local high school students are reproduced on four by eight foot banners easily read by passers-by.  These essays describe the military conflicts in which the United States has been involved throughout history.  They help to remind us of the price that has been paid and is still being paid today by the United States military.
