Turtles, Beatles and Ballet Fill Upcoming Weekend on the Space Coast

As we head into what will most likely be too short of a weekend, there’s at least a bright spot on the two-day horizon.  There will be plenty to do on Florida’s Space Coast this weekend! 

Beginning on Friday, June 24, the Brevard Manatees will play the first game of a five-day game schedule that will keep those us who hunger for peanuts, popcorn and crackerjack along with a slice of baseball busy.  Of course there will be tons of promotions for each game include a free cap giveaway, a cook-off, and a Harry Potter Look-A-Like contest. 

If you’re looking for something a little wet and wild, the 3rd Annual Titusville Sea Turtle Festival will continue on Friday and Saturday.  This event celebrates one of the rare natural wonders that frequent the Space Coast every year – the sea turtle!  An artisan village, family fish fry, live entertainment, Junior Ranger Camp and guided turtle hunts are scheduled.   

Looking for something more musical? Well the Space Coast will have it in spades this weekend with several shows going on throughout the county.  On Saturday, June 25, the Astronaut Memorial Planetarium and Observatory will host the U2 Laser Show!  Set to the music of the legendary Irish rock band, the show will be an explosion of music, lights, fog and unique imagery.   

The Galmont Ballet’s will take the stage for its seasons finale presentation, “Time, Space, and Movement” featuring original choreography by Frank Galvez at the Cocoa Village Playhouse.  Two performances will be held on Saturday, call 321-636-3550 for tickets. 

There’s still tickets available for Saturdays’s Classic Album Live-The Beatles Help! at the King Center for the Performing Arts.  Classic Albums Live is an ensemble of world-class musicians recreating the greatest Rock albums ever recorded live on stage. On Sunday, June 26 grab you a lawn chair or blanket and head out to Florida Tech for WFIT’s Twilight Jazz Concert.  Held every fourth Sunday, Florida Tech’s Panthereum grooves to the sound of cool jazz provided by local and regional artists.  Musicians are also invited to sit after the first set. The concert is free and open to the general public.
