Free Children’s Concert Series Returns To Santa Monica Pier This Saturday:

Starting this Saturday, Sept. 8, children aged 1-8 and their parents can enjoy free interactive concerts and activities at the Santa Monica Pier including singing, dancing and movement, puppets, talent shows, dress-up, face-painting, prizes, and bubbles.

This is the sixth year of the “Wake Up with the Waves, Children’s Concert Series” that will be held each Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. through November 3.

Series producer Michael Cladis is back again, and now partnering with local co-producer Green Brooms Music Academy to bring an amazing line-up of children’s entertainers.

“Either kids can hang out in front of the TV on Saturday morning, or they can kids get active, involved, and maybe even inspired,” says S. Jay Farrand, Pier Administrator. “It’s a great way to start the day with some fresh-air, and then you’ve got all the family fun of the Pier’s amusements, rides and restaurants afterwards.”

This year’s rebranding of the series was Inspired by the blocky children’s work of Ray and Charles Eames.

This concept uses poppy sea-themed graphics in a duo-tone treatment that’s easy for children to identify, coupled with action verbs that reinforce the interactive nature of the concert series.

For more information on these shows and all activities at the Santa Monica Pier, please call 310.458.8900 or visit www.WakeUpWithTheWaves.com.
