Dancing in the Moonlight at Playland this Summer

Milt Gerver Orchestra at Rye PlaylandSwing and sway to the romantic music of the Big Band era played against the backdrop of moonlight streaming across Long Island Sound when the Milt Gerver Orchestra performs on Fridays, July 11, 18, 25 and August 1 on the boardwalk at Playland Park in Rye. Rain date is August 8.

From 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. each week, Milt and his orchestra will evoke the nostalgic music of the immortal bandleaders of the 1930s and ‘40s like Glen Miller and Tommy Dorsey, accompanied by his professional vocalists. Jive to the lively “In the Mood,” waltz to the beautiful strains of “Moonlight Serenade,” or just sit back and enjoy the music and moonlight.

As an added bonus, you can watch the weekly fireworks display at 9:15 p.m.

Admission to the Big Band performances on the boardwalk is free. Seating is limited; visitors can bring folding chairs.

Parking is $5 on Friday evening, $1 for senior citizens with a Westchester County Park Pass.  Please use the poolside parking entrance.
