Adventure Harbor is a a cross between Stranger Things, Stand By Me, and the classic E.T. It’s entertainment for the whole family!
When two tween boys Nate and Tyler are pushed together by their parents developing relationship, they struggle to find anything in common as they are forced into a blended family. The newly formed family must figure things out fast. Nate and Tyler are exploring the beach area and meet Travis and Sarah. One night, Travis and Sarah take them to their favorite secret spot, a beautiful spot in the harbor. The harbor has been closed off to the public but that doesn’t keep them from enjoying the beauty of the blue waters. As they explore the harbor one night, they see something stirring in the waters, something with beautiful colors that dance off the light of their flashlights. The kids soon realize it’s some sort of mystical sea creature and quickly learn that she is injured and vulnerable. They must develop a plan to get her back to the open water and reunite her with her family. During this exciting adventure they meet both friends and foes but ultimately, it pulls this family together and creates memories and a bond between them that can never be broken.
Tickets are $10.

Founding South Bay Artist Collective Member, Paul Roustan, is putting on a DO NOT MISS show! Known for his work in body painting and photography, South Bay body paint artist, Paul Roustan is set for another solo show just in time for Halloween. Roustan says, “My work is often characterized as costuming, so it makes sense to make this Hermosa Beach’s BIGGEST Halloween Bash!”
Roustan’s events are never a small production, “I like to incorporate installations alongside the artwork so that it’s more an experience than a traditional gallery show. There will be several selfie opportunities in creative environments with four LIVE painted models of varying themes. Cameras are very welcome. “This will be like the grand Halloween events I went to as a kid, dark, fun, and memorable!”
Guests should come dressed for a costume contest offering a chance to win a unique photographic artwork by the accomplished artist. There will be all sorts of goodies, libations (sponsored by Nicaragua Craft Beer Co.), and of course CANDY!
DJ Thes One, from the acclaimed hip hop duo People Under the Stairs, will be spinning an all vinyl 45 set LIVE.
