Saturday July 2nd
We start of with that classic summer thriller, “JAWS” on the big screen Saturday, July 2 at both 3 pm and 7 pm at the Tybee Post Theater! It’s the movie that kept folks out of the water for years! But we’re not scared of any stinkin’ sharks on Tybee! Adults $7, children, $5.
Big Engine will be playing on Tybee Island’s Pier & Pavilion on July 2nd at 7:30-11 pm. These road warriors travel the country, bringing the party with crowd favorites: “That Girl’s a Freak,” “Turn It On,” “Shake That Thing,” “Party Like A Rockstar” and “Sister Mary.” They’ve shared the stage with Buckcherry, Motorhead, Bret Michaels, Vince Neil, Charlie Daniels, 38 Special, Ted Nugent, Jackyl, Shooter Jennings, and countless other national acts so you know this is going to be a great show!
Sunday July 3rd
Start your Sunday off right with the Market at the Lighthouse on the 6th from 10am to 4pm. There are some new vendors coming out along with all the regular favorites. From fossil art to handmade soaps, there really is something for everyone. Come on out and see what you’ve been missing!
Check out the Tybee Post Theaters monthly Savannah Songwriters Series — four singer-songwriters in the round swapping songs and telling stories, at 7 pm. We’re dark for the 4th so everyone can enjoy the fireworks and festivities on the beach. Only $10.
