Music and Fireworks at Playland this Summer!

Swing and sway to the romantic music of the Big Band era performed by the Milt Gerver Orchestra on Fridays, July 24, 31 and August 7 on the boardwalk at Playland Park in Rye.


In addition to Playland’s famous Dragon Coaster and Double Shot thrill rides, this event highlights one of the simpler delights the park has to offer: a beautiful summer evening on the boardwalk, listening to great music,”

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 Friday Night Fireworks display held at 9:15 p.m.

While admission to the Big Band performances on the boardwalk is free, seating is limited so if you go, bring folding chairs.

Parking using the poolside parking entrance is $5 on Friday evening, and only $1 for senior citizens with a Westchester County Park Pass. All events will be held weather permitting.

Playland Park is located on Playland Parkway in Rye. For details and additional information visit: Go to or call (914) 813-7010.
