This year’s Tiki Beach Fest is happening in Long Beach on August 19 & 20th, from sunrise to sunset. It all happens right on the beach, near the Granada St. launch ramp (5101 E Ocean Blvd). This is the festival’s sixth year; I went in 2004, and had a great time. Both days are full of vendors and music, and sunshine. Saturday’s focus is traditional Polynesia, with tiki carvers, hula dancers, and a luau (the luau costs $30). Sunday it’s all about Polynesian Pop, with a Tiki Hot Rod show.

During the festival, Crazy Al will be celebrating ten years (!) in the tiki carving biz. He will have a Ten Year Retrospective, and commemorative hiball and mug of his first two tikis, #1 and #2.
