This is the ninth New Blues Festival, the seventh in Long Beach, and the second time the New Blues Festival will be held in the prime entertainment destination of Shoreline Aquatic Park, which is a peninsula of land surrounded on three sides by water,” says Festival promoter and curator, Bill Grisolia. “One side of the Peninsula is located in the Pacific Channel, which leads to the Los Angeles River tributary. The other side is Rainbow Harbor, which includes both working fishing and charter boats as well as all types of pleasure crafts. Across from the tip of the Peninsula is the tip of Shoreline Village, with its iconic Lighthouse Restaurant. Shops and restaurants highlight the Shoreline Village experience including the original Yard House Restaurant. Next to the park is the Aquarium of the Pacific, with its $53 million Pacific Visions addition. The Aquarium is known throughout Southern California for its Rescue and Rehabilitation efforts and work with school children from across the Los Angeles and Orange County areas.”
