SANDUSKY, Ohio (July 11, 2019) – When the sun goes down, the fun goes up at Cedar Point’s annual summer nighttime beach festival, Cedar Point Nights. Every night, guests can customize their fun, whether they want to unwind and relax next to a lakeside fire pit or dance the night away to live music and DJ’s.

Lakeside Beach Music Festival

New this year along the Lakeside Midway, the Lakeside Stage will host a nighttime music festival featuring continuous live performances from local bands playing the best beach summer hits. Guests can relax on the outdoor lawn, on blankets or Adirondack chairs, roast s’mores and enjoy family games, crafts and more.

The Lakeside Beach Music Festival includes bands Not Fast Enuff, Surf’s Up!, Mellow Yellow, Country Chill and Walkin’ on Sunshine. The show will conclude with the Beach Bash for the ultimate end-of-the-night beach blowout playing beach party anthems.

Near the Lakeside Stage, the beach boardwalk atmosphere lights up with stilt walkers, clown performers and characters dressed in mesmerizing LED costumes, entertaining guests of all ages. Plenty of activities for kids will be available, including Lake Erie driftwood painting, mini pirate raft building, a seashell sand dig, glow face painting and giant corn hole.

On the Famous Cedar Point Beach

The sandy surface where the park had its start becomes a nighttime glow-in-the-dark party place with even more activities that extend beyond rides and roller coasters.

The diverse soundtrack to Cedar Point Nights guarantees something for everyone with Silent Disco, an opportunity for guests to grab custom headphones tuned to the musical genre of their choice. DJ Hurrikane and DJ Resistance will play the best summer sounds while guests dance the night away at the Beach Glow Party, while the Toes in the Sand Band will crank out soothing sounds and live music near the Sand Bar at Hotel Breakers, along the Cedar Point Boardwalk.

The beach comes alive with oversized glow inflatables, beach activities like glow volleyball, glow corn hole, light-up limbo and glow cube team trivia. Fire pits and glow furniture will provide places to relax and chill.

Surf’s Up Food Fest

When guests get hungry, a wide variety of late night food items will be available at the Surf’s Up Food Fest, located near the Lakeside Stage and along the beach and boardwalk. Summer favorites like perch tacos, jerk chicken pitas, custom hot dog creations, grilled pineapple-on-a-stick, ice cream novelties and blueberry crumb dessert will be served up fresh, grilled on the beach or from the Cedar Point Food Truck.

The new Moon Glow signature drink, a blend of tart green apple flavor with Sprite®, served in a souvenir light-up glow cup, joins many other summer thirst-quenching beverages from electric lemonade to bottled beer, craft beers and wine.
